Airbrushed Fridays: 1978 Topps #210


Welcome to the Crooked Scan Society.

Who is he? Jose Cardenal was a rangy Cuban-born outfielder who played for nine different teams across parts of three decades. He also very clearly had some awesome hair, though he probably doesn't belong on the podium with Oscar Gamble.


How did he get here? After six years with the Cubs, Cardenal was traded to the Phillies for the proverbial bag of balls - a guy named Manny Seoane that appeared in all of 9 games in his career.

Repeat offender? Yes (1981 Topps #473)

Other versions of this card: None

Airbrushed Score: 7

Comments: Like I said, it's no Oscar Gamble, but with hair like that the hat is going to look silly no matter if it's drawn on or legit.

He may not have achieved Oscar Gamble status, but Cardenal once played in the same Phillies' outfield with Garry Maddox and Bake McBride, making an all "maxi-fro" outfield.
