Fierce Foreheads

The girls from New Mexico have awoken from their mid-summer slumber and have offered up a challenge to all bloggers.
send us a picture of your fiercest forehead baseball card--preferably one in your collection.
Well, being a rule breaker (and they like rule breakers) I'm offering up three of them from my personal collection. And one of them plays football. Gasp.

Dennis, doffing his cap, showing his noggin at the 1991 All-Star Game.

1992 Upper Deck, Dennis Martinez (card #365)

Darryl, dressed sharply for a power lunch. Always good to have the cap riding high for a power lunch. That, and rumor has it that the girls admire Strawberry cards.

1991 Score, Darryl Strawberry (card #864)

Is he or isn't he? He's back in uniform, but for Minnesota. He went 1 for 1 for 13 yards this evening. Remember, it isn't the hat, but the forehead underneath the cheese.

1996 Pinnacle, Brett Favre (card #200)

So, I'm not going to make it easy. Patricia and Lucy can select any one of these (or all of them) to add to their voting scheme.

Oh, Patricia, a small horde of smashed pennies are collecting dust on my dresser. Look for them soon.

  1. Mark, as usual you are generous and vaguely mindboggling. The Favre is cheesehead and shoulders above the basic forehead.
