Poor Stanky

I’m not sure what’s more endearing about this player’s card: the unfortunate family name or the almost abstract-impressionistic vandalism. In any case, it’s still difficult not to feel sorry for Eddie Stanky: from childhood through adolescence, he likely never lived down that name. And even as an adult he (as well as his trading cards, apparently) probably still fell victim to the frequent, derisive taunts issued by child and man-child alike.
