Many players seem to have one or two baseball cards they wish did not exist due to a certain something being caught on camera in the heat of battle. Some were born looking a little off while others... well, others must have pissed off someone with the card companies to have had some pretty horrendous images printed hundreds of thousands of times.

Post your funny card faces. All years, teams and players are fair game!

I'll start with the 1997 Fleer Ultra #435 card of Kent Mercker:

[MENTION=1923]cartersprings[/MENTION] - That Rueter card is a crime against humanity! Guy is probably making a great catch but you can't stop staring at his face.

Take your pick of early Roger Clemens Pitching Face cards. At some point, he stopped making the goofy constipated face. Possibly once he was on HGH and didn't have to strain as hard to push the fastball across.

Then there's this Johnny Bench sticker prototype, I know I've seen the full image somewhere on another card:

The Topps photographers must have had a vendetta against Lou Johnson. He never had a card that didn't show him with a vacant stare, goofy smile, or pushing one out on the john:
