Raunchy names from 1992 Upper Deck

Recently I read the book Mint Condition, which was an interesting history of baseball cards. It had a lot of interesting tidbits. For example, Upper Deck was named after a baseball card store in California, and the employees at the store helped decide who would be in the set and who would get what number. Apparently they decided to play a joke in 1992. In the second half of the set, they gave each card that ended in "69" to a player with a "porn star name".


Actually I think it's pronounced "way-ner".


I guess too slow is better than too fast.


That one is a stretch.


Heh-heh. Dickie.
