#641 Rick Honeycutt

Why this card is awesome: Because, OMG, what a terrible airbrush job. Not only did they give him a ridiculous hat that looks like he's storing his lunch under there, but they put the Oakland name on his jersey so high it's ridiculous. Just like they did with Dave LaPoint.

Cool stat: Honeycutt posted one of the finest seasons for a reliever over 42, one of just 10 seasons with at least 60 games, and he pitched very well.

Topps really should issue a recall on all these bad airbrush jobs from this set and reissue decent photoshop versions (or, you know, find a photo of the guy in the then-current uni).
