Mail Call: Dinged Corners Air Lift

The latest air lift of cards was received this week from Dinged Corners and as you would expect it was great...filled with some players with "borderline horseshoe mustaches," a ton of Royals, and some great unique cards that only a mother could love...

First off, the Royals:

This Vince Coleman card has a pretty odd card design...a horizontal photo with vertial lettering...
They also sent along a card that could win Thorzul's Scary Card Contest...we have Joe Vitiello and his chest hair that you will have nightmares about for the next week:

We have Terry Leach doing his best Dan Quisenberry impersonation:

The oldest card in the group is this great 1981 Topps Willie Aikens...Willie's great mustache was good enough but the information on the back is even better....it's really Willie Mays Aikens and according to Topps, Willie's parents didn't name him, the doctor delivering him did...
And last but not least...you know Dinged Corners, I thought your blog was family friendly...political careers have been ended for photos less risqué than what's on this card...8-)

lol! That last one had me rolling. I really love the placement of the bat. It's almost as if they were trying to hide something you shouldn't see. Great post!

The best part about this is that Aikens finally got out of prison. I saw him at a Royals/Rockies game this year, but I didn't have a clue who he was until I saw an article about him a few months later. Then I was like, so that's the guy that was talking to Hurdle and Quirk. I hope that he is at fanfest.

Funny that a trainer has a baseball card. And to answer your poll question, A.J. Burnett will be the newest Yankee.
