Upper Deck Hates the Dodgers

Who knew that Baseball cards could be filled with such wanton hate. To align the power and mysticism of the "Great Dodger in the Sky" with such blasphemy is worthy of derision. Tommy Lasorda would put a hex on them. That grand "Baseball Wizard" would curse at you like he did to those pesky reporters after Reggie's 3 bombs in the World Series. To see that a child's pastime could be emblazoned with the sign of Satan has me worried for the future of us all. Of course, maybe I'm overreacting.

The post by the Garvey Cey Russell Lopes blog had me saying to myself, "that's pretty hilarious." Not that I like Satan or anything, but you gotta admit it's pretty funny.

From 1989 to 1993 Upper Deck routinely put a Dodger player on card number 666. Yhea, that's right. Upper Deck thinks the Dodgers are the devil. Check out the Garvey Cey Russell Lopes blog for more; including pics of the other cards.
