It's clean-up time at Chez PK.com and that means finding random shit I've been hanging onto for years, like that WWF trading card of Koko B. Ware's bird, Frankie, and the magazine that marked Sports Illustrated's landmark moment in homoeroticism.
This week I came across the pictured card of quarterback Neil O'Donnell, then just signed with the Jets in 1996. The photog must've taken dozens of portraits of O'Donnell before saying, "OK, now just do something retarded."
The ball represents the hopes of Steelers fans, whom O'Donnell crushed by throwing two of the most abominable interceptions in Super Bowl history, thus making Barry Switzer a (gulp) Super Bowl-winning coach. Still, the card back descibes O'Donnell as "very cool in the pocket." Guess the people at Score trading cards aren't into watching Super Bowls.
Value of the card, in case you're wondering, is minus-3 cents. Which is about normal for mid-90s collectibles, which are pretty much worthless.
