The baseball cards Amelie Mancini makes are not exactly what fans are used to seeing. Sure, they contain player stats, but not the usual ones.
For example, did you know that shortstop and second baseman Clint Barmes fell and broke his collar bone while carrying a package of deer meat up a flight of stairs? Or that former outfielder Glenallen Hill reportedly scraped himself up after having a nightmare about spiders? Or that former pitcher John Smoltz allegedly burned himself while ironing a shirt...while he was still wearing it?
These strange but apparently true injuries are captured for posterity on a set of cards called "Left Field Cards,"and this, the first set, aptly titled "Bizarre Injuries." They are printed from Mancini's own linocuts onto letterpress paper.
