1992 Baseball Enquirer

So this one's a real oddball. I got this out of a cheap retail box of 30 packs for like $15 bucks. Lots of fun, old stuff like '87, '88, and '89 Topps, 1990 Topps Stickers, and then '05, '06, and '07 Topps and Upper Deck base packs, Opening Day, First Pitch, and Update packs. And then there was this one.. never heard of them before, nothing on Beckett about these, they're probably quite worthless but still interesting.

These cards feature cartoon drawings of star players without the player's name or team anywhere on the cards. On the back is a very tongue in cheek interview with the mystery player.. and you're supposed to guess who it is. All these interviews have the same corny sense of humor so I'm guessing they're fake interviews. Here's an example:

Now, most of these players are immediately recognizable at first glance, and the team colors are way obvious. But if that's not enough, the interview should do it. Lol, wow, I forgot all about Dave's high voice not matching what you would expect him to sound like. I remember him talking on TV and taking a double take every time.

Here's what I got:

#1 Bo Jackson,
#9 John Smoltz,
#13 (Don't know. Looks like a Met who wrote an open letter to his teamates?),
#21 Dave Stewart,
#29 Ozzie Smith,

#37 Lenny Dykstra,

#45 Kirk Gibson,
#49 (Don't Know. Another Met who's pitching is suffering because of his hard partying?),
#53 Dan Gladden,
#57 (Don't know. Possibly a Phillies pitcher who throws lots of wild pitches?)
