WTF Part II: Calling Time Out

Posted in Newspaperman with tags , , , , , on April 26, 2011 by Cardboard Icons

Sometimes I like to look at cards and analyze certain things about it.  Why is a card designed such a way.  Why did a company choose a certain image?  Why is a certain player depicted within a certain set.  Sometimes, I am baffled and am left thinking — W…T…F…

Such is the case with this 1995 Score Jeff George “Offensive Inc.”

Jeff George never really did become the great offensive stud he was expected to be when the Colts drafted him in 1990.  He had a few good seasons, including 1994 when he set then-career high marks in completions, yardage, touchdowns and passer rating.  So how does Score celebrate this accomplishment?

They put him in this set … and depict him calling time out.  WTF…

So I was checking out CheckOutMyCards.com today for some Warren Spahn cards and came across this series of images.

1949 Bowman

1950 Bowman

1951 Bowman

Think Bowman could have used a different image during any of these years?  WTF?!  That is just lazy.
