I have tens of thousands of baseball cards in my basement.  I don’t think I have any as unintentionally hilarious as the ones Jon Bois highlights over at SB Nation today.

Most of them were issued by local police departments and contain anti-drug messages.  I guess their heart was in the right place, but the 1972 Dock Ellis card I was looking at over the weekend is still more compelling to me.

Click through for lots of larfs.

    I’m a teacher and was reading this article while my students took a test.

    I had to exit the page and come back later because I was laughing too hard.

      What was the test about?

        Social Studies. Jamestown, Plymouth, New Spain, Columbus…all that good stuff. Nothing I could fudge my way into explaining was laugh-worthy.

    Because there have been eleven of these, and all of them are fabulous.

    Hmmm……Doc Ellis? What could that possibly have to do with drugs? Oh, yeah the no-hitter he pitched on acid!
