Bad day for Jose

Here is one of the cards from the bunch from Rich. It features Jose Canseco's ill-fated pitching attempt on May 29, 2003 in Boston. Not only did he give up three runs in the Rangers' 15-1 shellacking at the hands of the Red Sox, but he injured his arm, requiring season-ending surgery, and his career never was the same.

Too bad Score's photographers weren't at the Rangers game in Cleveland three days earlier. They could have captured one of baseball's all-time bloopers - a long fly ball bouncing off of Canseco's head over the fence for a home run. Was that incident ever captured on cardboard?
