Mets fan / former Parisian Amelie Mancini is peddling a series of hand-printed linocut baseball cards marking the sport’s more pathetic unusual injuries and/or the excuses fans and front-offices alike were expected to swallow (ie. Clint Barmes falling down the stairs while trying to carrying sacks of deer meat). Though I’m sure we can all cite injuries Ms. Mancini omitted from the collection (Steve Tracshel trying to pitch with a broken heart, or Vince Coleman being attacked by a tarp), perhaps she’ll see fit to print a second edition. Or branch out to other sports (link courtesy Repoz and Baseball Think Factory)
