Thanks to it coinciding with law school I’ve blocked out a lot of things that happened between 1995 and 1998. This — from several years ago but pointed out by Old Time Family Baseball today — must have been one of them:
1996 Pinnacle Baseball’s Christie Brinkley Collection. The 16-card insert set from Series Two saw the supermodel go and visit the Braves and Indians at World Series time and take some artsy photos of them for an insert set.
Fred McGriff is chewing on a baseball. Ryan Klesko is on a surf board holding a bat like a gun. Albert Belle is holding a baby and we can only assume the picture was taken moments before he ate it. Javy Lopez obviously said “no, I’m not posing all ridiculous for you lady.”
They’re all terribad. But I really just want to know how it came about that someone said “you know, I like Christie Brinkley. I like baseball cards. Let’s put them together?”
