By George (Scott) I Think He's Got It!

A necklace made out of the teeth of 2nd baseman that is! That is the myth regarding what George is wearing in these great "which card is airbrushed?" cards from the Topps and O-Pee-Chee sets.

1977 O-Pee-Chee #210 George Scott
1977 Topps #255 George Scott


Is it just me or does this card look like it was shot in front of green screen?

1973 Topps #263 George Scott


Before there was John Olerud, George would sometimes play first base with a batting helmet on...but instead of adding protection from a past brain injury, George wore it to protect him from things being thrown at him from the stands.

1976 Kelloggs 3-D #21 George Scott

Nyjer Morgan might want to consider that approach this season!
