There have been some bad baseball cards in the past. Billy Ripken’s infamous “[Expletive] Face” bat. Jay Johnstone’s umbrella hat. Chuck Finley’s bat/guitar. But at least it was unmistakable who was in it.
“Whose card do you think that is?” [Werth] asked.
It’s a picture that includes Werth pointing to something in the stands at Nationals Park — he’s not sure what anymore. It’s kind of neat, actually. But … it could be anybody’s card.
“Thank you,” Werth said.
Brown’s article includes a snapshot of the card. While you can make a reasonable assumption that Werth is the focus of the card since he’s closest to the middle, Anthony Rendon and Ian Desmond are clearly visible on the left side of the card. As Brown notes, even trainer Steve Gober gets some face time in the frame.
Werth isn’t enraged about the issue or anything, but you can bet Topps will give the Nats outfielder his deserved face time in the next edition.
