Card of the Day: 1993 Upper Deck Curt Schilling

Why, yes, I do have a 1993 UD factory set. I had scanned these for general amusement purposes before my scanner died on me. (I went to Best Buy today…and bought a toaster oven. Next paycheck, maybe?)

Here’s the back of a card. The front is your standard Pitcher Throwing a Ball In-Game shot. The back….

1993 Upper Deck Curt Schilling

warning: bunts

Relief pitchers bunting! It’s the greatest! OK, so Schilling was a starter for half the year, but you know relief pitchers never usually take BP (only wacky dudes like Seth McClung do that) and AL relief pitchers take BP even less so, and that’s what he was until 1991. Even after 17 seasons in the NL and 3 of AL interleague games, Curt Schilling was still dead useless at batting, with a lifetime batting average of .151 and OPS of .349. (He drew a lot of walks in 1999 for no discernable reason, and also hit a triple. How?)
