Airbrushed Fridays: 1978 Topps #416


As I write this, the Cardinals and Royals are getting set to resume the final game of their four game home/road split series, after an extremely long rain delay. The start of the game was already delayed by an hour. Why didn't they call it off? Well, St. Louis led the entire game until the heavy rains started in the top of the 9th. Kansas City scored 3 runs and looked ready to score about 30 more when everyone was pulled off the field. If the game does not resume, the Cardinals win, but this game should and could be the Royals for the taking. Did I mention that it's well past 2 AM local time?

Who is this week's victim, and why? Jack Brohamer, or "Broheim" to all his chill buds, did some cool baseball stuff and totally rocked the place. He got some hits, probably, and hit a few out of the park. He was totally sweet. He played for the BoSox, the White Sox, and that team with the little chief dude on their unis. Tight.


Why is this a thing? Brohamer got this sick airbrushing thing done to his card because he wasn't down with the Red Sox until, like, after they snapped this killer pic. He played for those wicked little crittas for a couple of years before he hung it up to catch a wave and chillax for years. Killer.

Airbrushed Fridays is a weekly feature as the name seems to imply. If you know of a card with an altered photograph that you'd like to see featured, please contact me. You probably won't win anything other than a date with scud, but you never know!
