On Barry Bonds

Above is his 1985 Topps rookie card.

I default to Wired's The Luddite and The Onion on this one.

UPDATE: And how did everybody miss THIS?

I love the "Make Us Relatively Proud" banner.

I always thought he was a cyborg. What cold, heartless bastard would deprive a cyborg of his robot super-arm?

And it's a bit suspicious that Bonds was well into his 30s before undergoing his remarkable growth spurt (along with a corresponding rise in his home run totals)

I disagree. I don't know many people who DIDN'T get bigger in their 30's. I had a remarkable growth spurt at ~31.
