Not to be a spoiler, but comedian Joel McHale won our baseball-card game. In the weeks that we’ve spent opening 25-year-old baseball cards with baseball players, collectors and celebrities, no one has scored like McHale.
If you’re new to this: I have a few boxes of 1991 baseball cards that have been sitting in storage, unopened, for 25 years. Rather than collecting more dust, I figured it would be fun to open these largely worthless cards with baseball people and have a few laughs.
McHale isn’t a baseball player. He’s a funnyman who you may know best from “The Soup” and “Community,” and who is returning to TV this fall in CBS’ “The Great Indoors.” But he did take part in the Esurance MLB All-Star Game Challenge at MLB FanFest last week and was happy to bust open some wax packs with me.
We looked at mullets, talked about Wade Boggs’ beer-drinking ways and McHale told some funny but not-exactly-true stories about the players in his pack. As someone who spent his formative years in the Seattle era, he also pulled one card that he was particularly happy about — and that I later tried to acquire in a trade.
I’m not telling you who it is. Because, hello, that’s my teaser. You’ll have to watch the video. But if you think really hard, you might be able to guess it.
