Utter Boredom on a Friday Night

About a month ago I ripped a pack of 1990 Topps Heads Up! that I got from fellow ripper Shane Diaz. He sent two packs of the stuff but I saved the second pack for a rainy day. That day is here. It's Friday night, the pager keeps going off so I can't do anything fun, and I have nothing new to rip for the blog. I looked over the Heads Up pack and wondered if I could figure out who was in it without actually opening the thing. After fondling it for a while trying to count the bumps like some kind of pervert, I finally had a Eureka! moment. I grabbed a sheet off a notepad and found a blue crayon. This is the result:


Below is a scan of the back of the pack with a checklist. Can you tell by the outline which disembodied head of a baseball star lies within the wrapper? Post your guesses in the comments, I'll open the sucker up tomorrow before the football game starts to reveal the secrets within.


Allllll Righty then! I'm awake, you've had time to make your guesses and it's time to open. What shall we find? My guess is the one I said I wanted to hang on my wall in the last post.

HAROLD REYNOLDS' SMILIN FACE

I'm going to give Harold a great big hug and put him up on my wall so whenever I read depressing news on the interwebs I can look up and smile along with Harold. Ah, I feel better already.

Definitely Saberhagen.

Definitely not Griffey.

I was always amused by the severe angle at which he was photographed, with his brim sticking out like Charlie Brown's.

I'll go with Gooden.
