Some more fun cards.

 Jeff Conine skips some rope. Why was he never called "Conine the Barbarian?" Heck, he had the bone and everything (see my last post).  I guess barbarians don't skip.

I bet Jack Armstrong didn't have to do this when he was an all star in 1990. Jack switched from the number 40 that he wore in his glory day with the Reds to the number 77 in his stints with the Indians, the Marlins, and the Rangers. Based on his stats in those three seasons, I'm thinking that 77 was about the max he hit on the radar gun.

Randy Myers practices his moonwalk. He should have been practicing ducking, as he got hit pretty hard in his stint as a Jay. Randy made 13.5 million in 1999 & 2000. He pitched exactly no innings in those 2 seasons. He made one appearance for Tacoma in the PCL in 2001. He faced 4 batters, gave up 3 hits (including a home run) and a walk and 4 earned runs.

And the now-retired Trevor Hoffman pisses off some photographer by wasting film on close ups of Tony Gwynn's ass.
No doubt that Trevor was the best former minor league shortstop with an older brother named Glenn who also played in the majors to ever pitch in the bigs.
