What if I, Lou Brown, had a 1989 Donruss baseball card?


My Cleveland Indians never got any respect, despite a pair of division titles and a couple of postseason runs.

And then we were broken up via free agency so Rachel Phelps could make a buck.

And the ultimate sign of disrespect is that we never appeared on any real baseball cards.

But what if I, Lou Brown, had a card? Well, I do — sort of.

What you see above is what my 1989 Donruss baseball card would have looked like thanks to a big Major League fan.

back-brownThe San Antonio Express-NewsChris Olds (now with Beckett Media) created this card for the newspaper’s sports section in 2005. It looks like he created nine cards for the 1989 set … so far.

It’s my kinda card, Charlie. It’s my kinda card.

— Lou Brown,
