Color me hopeless

Don't ask me why I was going through my 1991 Fleer cards the other day, but I was. And I came across this card.

Being the hopeless color freak that I am, I read the name, looked at the border, and chuckled.

That prompted me to track down these other cards:

The Bud Black card may not be as obvious as the other ones, but it works for me.

I didn't spend a lot of time searching, so I don't know if there are similar cards for Pete Rose or Frank/Roy/Bill/Gabe White or Kevin/Bobby/Chris/Emil/Gates/Jackie Brown. But I'll search again some other time.

If you found this as fascinating as I did, or even vaguely eventful, then you may be a color freak, too. If you didn't, well, that's OK. I now return you to your colorless, barren, despair-filled lives.

Joking. I'm joking.

  3. As much as any blogger out there, you've gotten me to actually LOOK at the cards. Nice connection with the color/name combo. Now I have something else to look for.
