1990 Upper Deck - Oil Can Boyd (Lo Series)

1990 Upper Deck - Oil Can Boyd (Hi Series)

Things that need to be pointed out here:

-Awesome name… Oil Can.  You just don’t see that anymore, it’s too bad.
-Red Sox uniform: hat perched way up high for that “I can do whatever the fuck I want” effect
-Expos uniform: glasses off for that “Clark Kent/Superman” effect
-Both cards: just a hint of the mass of gold chains Oil Can was famous for wearing.  I remember one big delay in a game against the Blue Jays when someone had to come out and take them off for him, the umpires said it was distracting or something.
