2008 Card-vent Calendar: December 12

December 12, 2008:
1995 Upper Deck Collector's Choice #89 Frank Thomas What's the Call?

This card is a lot like the old "You Make the Call" promos that used to be shown during NFL games. There's a question on the back involving Frank Thomas, Mark McGwire, and Rickey Henderson that's too insipid to recreate here. The umpire graphic named Stumpy is really the highlight for me. He looks like he'd fit right in with the Three Stooges, so he probably got in a few good "Nyuk, nyuk, nyuks" as Thomas jumped into the crowd to make the catch.

Who does Frank Thomas look more like on this card?
A. Frank Thomas
B. Mike Tyson

What's the Call?

Unfortunately, Tyson.

I only bought a few packs of 1995 Collector's Choice and never saw this subset. It looks like a Ren and Stimpy (or maybe Stumpy) cartoon.
