Was there ever an dder-looking baseball player than Willie McGee? His mug could stop a train!

All the money Willie McGee made as an athlet and he still couldn't buy himself a chin. As far as the artword goes, not a cards fan, but definitely a fan of this artwork. Great as always Mr. Ullman.

Man, I need to start proofreading before I hit the publish button!

Thanks, Ben!

Thought I'd link to an image of ol' Willie, just as reference for those 'a you who didn't grow up collecting baseball cards. Despite his, er, uh, facial disadvantages, everything I've ever read about the guy implies he was an all-around class act and swell fellow.

Willie McGee's ugliness is epic!

His '86 Topps card is definitely a thing of beauty (horror).

Willie wasn't pretty but the guy could hit. I love this pic, the 80s classic. Willie was my boyhood hero!
