1981…the year the Reds had the best record in baseball but were excluded from the playoffs. I’m sure Bud Selig had something to do with that. Ken Griffey Jr. was still in middle school I think at this point.
Inspired by a conversation with Patrick, here are a few more Will Ferrell “fun cards” I created while watching the seventh season of True Blood early this morning.
TWJ contributor Patrick mixed it up with the designs used for the lower rounds of the 2013 MLB Draft, grabbing three multi-player templates from the 1970s and two from the 1980s. I’m not going to post a rundown of each draft pick…that’s what Google is for. Or you can check out the Draft Tracker at mlb.com if you just want the vitals for these guys. Who knows, one of them might be the next Mike Piazza, or Ian Kinsler, or Albert Pujols.
