1, 2, 3, Foreheads...

Dinged Corners has issued a challenge. Since my collection is so utterly disorganized, I couldn't possibly hope to find any "fierce forehead" cards without digging through boxes, piles, and drawers of cards. Rather than risk an avalanche, I went to a "slightly" more organized part of my collection. I figured that I could pull a few ferocious foreheads from my collection on Topps Million Card Giveaway.

I was surprised at how many fierce foreheads I came across. Here are three of my favorites:

Wrinkly Warren
Galloping Goodwin
and last, but not least: Bud Daley's "Five" Head

LOST... The Retro Baseball Card Set + Weezer Update

For those of you that are "in the know" (read: cool), you know that the new Weezer album, due out Sept. 14th, will be called "Hurley".

Yes. That is the cover. No text, nothing but Jorge Garcia's smiling face. I love Weezer. I love LOST. I love this cover!

Now for the REAL Weezer update: I am going to see Weezer tomorrow! For free! (with paid admission to the Del Mar Racetrack) I have only seen them live twice (Once in Seattle about 16 years or so ago, and more recently at Coachella a few years back.) Both times they were absolutely incredible, so I am really looking forward to tomorrow.

This wouldn't be a LOST... The Retro Baseball Card Set post if I didn't make a card, so here you go:

PRP LOST - #61 Hurley

Design based on: 1992 Mr. Turkey Superstars #3 - Sandy Alomar Jr.

Wow! I had never even heard of Mr. Turkey cards before today! Thanks Check Out My Cards! I think this one worked pretty well with the Mr. Cluck's concept.

LOST... The Retro Baseball Card Set

For those of you unfamiliar with the story of how Jacob and the Man in Black came to the island, I would recommend watching "Across the Sea", Episode 15 from season six. For those of you unfamiliar with Jacob and the Man in Black, I would imagine you aren't interested in LOST, and are just reading this post for the pictures. Well, here they are:

PRP LOST - #60 Claudia

Design based on: 2010 Topps Allen and Ginter Mini Lords of Olympus #LO10 - Gaea

LOST... The Retro Baseball Card Set

Today we venture into the world of golf cards. This card pays tribute to "The First, and Hopefully Last, Island Open" Invitational Tournament

PRP LOST - #59 Jack DFL

Design based on: 1981 Donruss #NNO - Tom Watson SL

LOST... The Retro Baseball Card Set

The series has ended, but the set lives on!

I am moving on to imaginary characters now...

PRP LOST - #58 Dave

I have never been a fan of the '57 Topps set, and to this point had resisted using it as a basis for one of my retro-LOST cards. But, since I haven't done much lately, I figured I would give you an new card that is exactly that... not much. (I didn't like how the white and yellow lettering worked on this one, so I went with the red & blue. Sue me.) 

Design based on: 1957 Topps #351 - Dave Hillman RC

Fantasy Baseball Season 2... UPDATE

Since I haven't posted anything in over a month, I feel it necessary to give you something... amything!

The Card Blog League is nearing the playoffs. Let's take a look at the standings:

Once again, it looks as if I am heading into the playoffs in 1st place. Unfortunately, I never end up in first...
