Fun Cards: 1990 Pro Set Special “Holey Moley”

I can’t be the only one that loves the show Holey Moley, can I? Why has no company taken it upon themselves to create a set of trading cards? I mean, come on, this is comedy gold!

Curry

Tessitore

Riggle

Course Marshal Joe

Kenny G

I had no intention of making a Kenny G card, but the image was there and the template was made…

Speaking of templates, this is based on Pro Set’s 1990 special card of Payne Stewart which featured the NFL logo rather than the PGA. I believe it was sent to subscribers of the Pro Set Gazette, before their golf trading cards were licensed by the PGA.

Fun Cards: “Baseball Immortals” Curt Schilling ***SNUBBED***

Schilling Snubbed

Curt Schilling failed to receive the requisite 75% for the Hall of Fame. He has two years remaining on the ballot, so induction seems inevitable…just not this year.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Keith Millard (NFL, baseball-style)

Millard Knows Football Cards

Keith Millard was the 1989 AP Defensive Player of the Year and was a Pro Bowler in 1988 and 1989.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Boomer Esiason (NFL, baseball-style)

Boomer Knows Football Cards

Introducing the 1988 NFL Most Valuable Player, Boomer Esiason. Norman Julius led the Bengals to the Super Bowl while leading all quarterbacks in passer rating and ten other offensive categories. Despite the heartbreaking loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XXIII, Boomer beat out Randall Cunningham, Roger Craig, Mike Singletary, Warren Moon, Keith Millard, and Herschel Walker for the Associated Press MVP Award.

Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Christian Okoye (NFL, baseball-style)

The Nigerian Nightmare Knows Football Cards

The Nigerian Nightmare was a blast to watch. Christian Okoye plowed through defenders like nobody’s business. I really wish his career had lasted longer. His breakout season wasn’t until 1989, but I couldn’t resist making a 1988 card for my all-time favorite Kansas City Chief. (Please don’t ask me to name any other Kansas City Chiefs players.)
