1958 Topps
Warren Spahn All Star


Poor old Warren Spahn.

In most cases I would smile (or frown) after looking at this card and move on. But considering I started this blog a few weeks ago, I thought this would be a perfect addition to the site.

I wonder who gave Spahn his makeover? Was it a disgruntled Cardinals fan? Did a kid in Chicago take out his frustrations after Spahn pitched a shutout over his beloved Cubs? Or did an overzealous 4-year-old trace over big brother's favorite lefthander?

Who knows?

Whatever the reason, this is a true example of a poor old baseball card.

Looks like a Batman villain, which if you think about it is quite appropriate...
