Once again I have come across a gem of a baseball card. This card is of Tim Flannery holding his surfboard while with the San Diego Padres. Flannery spent his entire 11 year career with the Padres, and that silly pose for this baseball card was in fact the high-point of his career as his life-time OPS of .652 suggests...he sucked. Hang 10 dude!
What the hell was Topps thinking when they made this card? The afro is flippin' awesome, but the headline is so corny that Del Monte wouldn't touch it. Oscar was one cool brother too, as he was with the Phillies from 70-72 and went on to smack 200 dingers.
