Default Most boring card ever?

I am a huge fan of Harmon Killebrew, but I despise his '61 Topps card. I cannot bring myself to buy a copy, it is just so painfully boring... especially for a player of his caliber.

Anyone else?

Ted Williams 1939 Play Ball is such a boring rookie for such a great player.

Also, I think Yaz had three total photo sessions for Topps over his 23 years and they just reused the same photos

Give 'Killer' a break and pick up one in nice condition.

Referencing my big hard-cover 'Topps Baseball Cards: The Complete Picture Collection - A 40 Year History', I found that any player without an identifying team cap - what has to be a record 101 cards out of the 589-card set fall into this 'boring' category...including five more Hall-of-Famers, two of which are All-Star cards.

This fact pinpoints why the 1961 set is one of my least favorite sets.

Ray,
Totally agree, the hatless photos are very boring to begin with. But there's something about the closeup of his bald noggin that just adds to the mundaness of the card.

Hatless manager cards, particularly bald ones, are a level below hatless players

Actually, I remember the crushing disappointment of getting a 1972 rack pack at the supermarket and coming across this beauty...

I always found it boring, or annoying, when I pulled a checklist out of a pack as a kid. My opinion of them hasn't changed much since then.

I agree. I could never get myself to buy the 1963 Fleer checklist to complete the set because who wants to pay big money for a stupid checklist!
