Male Pattern Baldness - The Frankenset

Before you shoot down this idea, know that it came to me in a dream.  This came to me in an honest-to-goodness real nighttime dream.  In my dream...I was a blogger.  A card blogger.  Tough to believe, I know.  A card blogger who gained internet fame, credibility, and notoriety by creating a very unique Frankenset.  The Male Pattern Baldness Frankenset.

This is what I dream about.  This is the best that my subconscious can come up with.  It's so sad.

So, if I decided to put this together, what balding, thinning, aging gentlemen would I put in it?  How about a Hall-of-Famer?

What about tennis?  There hasn't been anyone to go bald from that sport has there?

Oh yeah.

I'm beginning to think that making this set is a bad idea.  A very bad idea. 

So it's a no-go.  My better judgment says to stay as far away from these chrome domes as I can.  What is the farthest thing possible away from these guys?

I think that should be a safe pick.

What say you -- did I miss any notorious baldness sufferers?


  1. You missed the two most obvious, in Harmon Killebrew and Matt Williams.

  2. You should do the baldness set. That would be epic!!!

  3. I think that while difficult to complete, that may be a cool set to collect. I can't think of any other follicly challenged players at this time though. Maybe Gordie Howe?


Have something to say?
