The Angry Baseball Card Nerd

Credit for the idea behind this post goes to Stale Gum. His tweets comparing the guy on the 2011 Allen & Ginter code advertisement card to the Angry Video Game Nerd were spot-on, and I just decided to take it a step further.
Here's the card we're talking about.

Below is a picture of the Angry Video Game Nerd. If you don't know who he is, go search for him on YouTube. In a nutshell, he shares his hilarious take on old video games of dubious quality. Horrible, horrible games like Ghostbusters for NES, Konami's Top Gun, and awful gimmicks like the Power Glove.

I've spent more time watching his reviews than I'd like to admit, but damn, they're so addictive, especially if you have experience wasting time and effort trying to solve a nearly unsolvable game like Ghosts n' Goblins.
I thought it would be funny if the card collecting community had an Angry Baseball Card nerd. He'd be a guy who exclusively reviewed awful products from junk wax's past. Perhaps this is in my future. In any case, I've gone ahead and written the theme song. This has already been published as a comment on Stale Gum's Allen & Ginter box break post, but here is its official debut.

♫He's gonna take you back to the past
And rip the shitty wax that sucks ass
He'd rather have
Robinson Canoooooooo
Take a diarrhea dump in his ear
He rather pulllllllll
A rotten asshoooooole
Like Albert Belle than drink a good beer
He's the angriest collector ever heard
He's the angry Pinnacle Brands nerd
He's the angry Fleer, Score, Donruss nerd
He's the Angry Baseball Card Nerd♫

Thanks for the card scan, dayf!

I LOVE IT! I've been obsessed with AVGN since I first discovered it 6 or so months back, and that song is absolutely awesome.

You guys should check out Cr1tikal's videos too:

The Mario Party one is probably the best.

I never understood why he called himself a nerd. He drank beer and played video games and got pissed off at them and he was funny! Nerds don't drink beer! Nerds make beer in their garages, complete with custom labels and give it away at christmas time, but nerds don't drink it!
Thanks for the post and a blast from the past; the AVGN!
