"I'm seeing double...four Krustys!"

Did anyone else notice this shit?


Topps has started taking its stupid-ass parallel bullshit to the next muthafuckin' level and shit. I guess this is what happens when you let Philip Glass act as fuckin' project coordinator of MLB All-Star Game photography. These cards are numbered 238, 241, 243, 244, 245, and 246.

Fuck me.

Eadweard Muybridge and shit.

Hell, at least this lack of originality allows me to use the term "zoopraxiscope," which it looks like this run of cards is designed for. Back in the early 1900s you could pay a nickel to peep through a hole to witness proof that all four legs of a horse are airborne during a point of its running stride. Now you can do the same with National League righties.

Dang, puttin that "word-a-Day" calendar to use already, eh!? And, you managed to squeeze in a zoopraxiscope to boot! :-P

Set camera on tripod. Point at rightie. Shoot. Zoom in. Shoot. Zoom out. Shoot. Repeat.

The last place I expected to see a Muybridge reference is a baseball card blog. Well done, sir!
