Ridiculous Cards - Wayne Presley

1992 Topps Stadium Club #24 - Wayne Presley

I thought the Rob Zettler card was the strangest card from the 1992 Topps Stadium Club hockey set, but I was wrong. Apparently Rob was not the only player with a desire to show off his motorcycle. The odd thing is that on Wayne's card, the motorcycle itself is cropped right out of the picture (aside from some crappy red racing stripes and some fishnet near the back). The focus here doesn't seem to be on Wayne's ride so much as his riding "look".

This card is a prime example of how things went terribly wrong in the 80s and early 90s on the style front. Wayne has commited a classic fashion faux pas of denim on denim. The jacket and pants are such a similar shade that it almost gives the illusion of a denim jump suit. The gloves are just plain creepy. I have no idea why the knuckles have to be exposed. I wonder if there are any more motorcycle shots in this set?

I had the denim on denim thing going on too in 1991. I also had a light blue Led Zeppelin tie dye t-shirt that I wore with the jacket and jeans once and it all blurred together like some sort of blue nightmare. Good times...

Hahaha, at least you had a Led Zeppelin shirt going for you. Wayne's card would've been a lot cooler had I seen the artwork for Houses of the Holy sticking out near his collar...
