Please Don't Lick It

With apologies to Mario, let me add a card to the Hall of Shame.

It would be David Cone's 1995 Sport Flix #26. This card has one shot of Cone about to wind up and the other, as you can see, of David seeming to lick the baseball. Is it a play on his name?...e.g. licking an ice cream cone...I hope so because I'm out of ideas otherwise.
