Terribly Awesome Baseball Card: Keith Comstock

By July 30, 2014June 18th, 2018No Comments

Where is Bob Saget when you need him? This fan submission of Keith Comstock’s minor league card is the only card I’ve seen that looks like a still photo version of an America’s Funniest Home Videos entry. Some off camera teammate seems to have lobbed a baseball directly into Keith’s gonads as if this photo shoot was an outtake from a Jackass episode. Comstock’s minor league team is aptly named the Stars, which happens to be what Keith is seeing at this exact moment. With a minor league budget, do you think they could afford to reshoot this card? Hell no! From the look of that bulge in those tight pants, Keith is either wearing a cup or has a decent size package, so I offer no sympathy to him.

Keith Comstock went on to have a six-year career in the majors as a middle reliever. He now holds a position as the rehab pitching coordinator of the Texas Rangers, rehabilitating pitchers from rotator cuff surgery, elbow dislocation, and stray line drives to the scrotum.
