I got this 1987 Topps see-through-pack from the Card Chase box I already talked about here in the blog. I know I'm missing the rest of packs (inlcuding this one!) I got in that box, but before that, I have to talk about a specific card.
It's not because it's Barry Jones.
It's not because it's a Pirate card.
It's not because it's a card from one of the most beloved sets by many collectors.
It's not because anything else but the fact that Jones seems like a Policeman passing a ticket to someone.
Really. Look at the cap. I don't know what went through the mind of the illuminated one that design those Pittsburgh caps but he/she really had a bad day. Or just wanted to make fun of the players (and fans who ever dared to buy one!).
I don't want to insult anyone. But please...
And Jones even have the mustache to make it more realistic.
