The Horror of Terry Richardson Baseball Cards

Share |

I started using Twitter at the behest of my old editor at the Wall Street Journal, who saw it as an important way to keep up with things. This was years ago, before we learned what Twitter was, which was a way to mostly not keep up with things, and to introduce a level of goofy background noise into online life, and -- and I've found this to be the most helpful way to use it -- as a way to exorcise the most horrible joke ideas that streak, screaming and rampant, through my consciousness. That is the only excuse I have for this tweet:

Which, clearly, is horrible. It's horrible because Terry Richardson -- a depressingly omnipresent photographer and odious sex creep -- is horrible, and because now you've got the image of Mark Teixeira in little shiny '70s gym shorts working on a lolly while Richardson, all avid and leering and hirsute, urges more, give me more. This is something that never should have been in my mind, or anyone's. Sharing it with others was not nice.

The idea of Terry Richardson shooting a set of EDGY baseball cards did, however and however upsettingly, find some purchase on Twitter. The result, as it generally is, was a flurry of frenzied fave-ing and guilty/grossed-out chuckles and finally the hashtag #TerryRichardson4Topps, suggested by Friend Of The Classical @Netw3rk, which led only to more of the same.

It was sad for me to see Topps, my old place of employment and legitimately the best trading card company in the land, get roped into this. But Donruss is a lot of characters, and -- as the early evening demonstrated -- there was clearly a lot that people wanted to get off their respective chests about Terry Richardson and various baseball players. So. Here are our horrible minds, on Twitter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE:

Tough to put together a passable selection of these when the horror just keeps on coming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please do not PhotoShop any of these. And if you do please send them to me and I will add them to this.
