What’s wrong with this picture?

There was a time when hobbyists clamored over errors and oddities among baseball cards.  Wrong name, no name, missing logos, etc.  People loved them.

Now?  Not so much.

If you haven’t figured out what make’s this 2003 Ultimate Collection Signatures Gary Carter a Horrible Card it’s the fact that the catcher is shown hitting left handed.  And it’s not because he actually hits left handed, it’s because someone at Upper Deck was too lazy to find a photo that actually fit their design. They decided instead to flip the negative of the picture as if no one would ever notice.

Well I did.

Ugh … this card is just horrible.
