What's considered ugly is loosely defined for the purposes of this contest. I figured I'd start out with one the all time ugliest sets, 2012 Panini Triple Play. I started scrolling through each card, and my friends, I think I found a winner!
|2012 Panini Triple Play #25 Carlos Gonzalez|
Where to begin? Let's start with the ears, which look like they belong on Shrek. That may be the feature that sticks out the most (play on words intended!), but definitely not the only thing that makes this card ugly.There's also the fact the neck, head, and cap are all similar in width, giving poor Carlos an almost phallic shape. Then, there is what I am going to refer as Carlos's "half-face". He has a lower lip, but no upper lip. He has nostrils, but the bridge of the nose is no where to be seen. The artist drew in the irises, but no pupils. Throw in Panini's lack of a proper MLB license, and you have one ugly card! Mr. Gonzalez deserves better.
Think you can come up with a card uglier than this? head over to Baseball Every Night and join in!
Oh, hey, this is post #300! Whoo-hoo!
