Default Iconic PreWar cards I love to HATE

There are certain cards that are so unappealing to me that I can't bring myself to own one. I see them posted, offered in major auctions and I instantly move on. There are certainly a lot of ugly cards out there, but some are actually coveted by collectors. Sorry, but I'm not spending good cash for a card i don't like, no matter how iconic. I know...to each his own and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. All in good fun....you take these cards, I'll move on:

1)1909 E90-1 Joe Jackson Wanna last longer during sex? Try putting one of
these dogs on the bedside table to take your mind
off things!! The only reason people own this card
....is to tell other people they own the card. Now
take a hard look then list it on Ebay with all the
others.
2)1952 US Caramel Babe Ruth " Look fellas my hat is 3 sizes too small"
I love this set, but the Ruth is awful.
Babe Nerd....there i said it!
3)1909 E91 Christy Mathewson I'm a Mathewson collector and refuse to
acknowledge this card. Comic picture of
someone with zero resemblance of the man.
At least my crummy strip cards try to look
like the player. I don't get it and always pass!
4)1933 DeLong Lou Gehrig Ugly card. Cartoon background with bizarre image
of Gehrig batting. I think the top and bottom of him
are from two different images. I tried to do this
batting swing/pose and pulled something in my
low back. Ill take the 33 Goudey thank you
5)1938 Goudey Heads Up Joe DiMaggio The person responsible for this set was
fired the next day,right??.....Right???

I know many will disagree. Ugliness IS in the eye of the beholder

I've always thought the Joe Jackson Cracker Jacks looked weird. The guy on the front of that card doesn't scare me one bit. He should look tougher.

I'm not a big fan of any of Ruth's caramel cards either. The one with the bird? That crappy picture of him with the baseball? I do love the montage one though.

Agree with 4 of the 5 mentioned but I think the US Caramel Ruth is a great card.

I would add Johnson hands at chest which looks nothing like him, CJ Jackson for same reason, E90-1 Mathewson for same reason, N28 Anson for same reason.

While "hate" is a strong word... a card I used to like a lot, that I now can only stare at in a quizzical way...is the T-3 Turkey Red Ty Cobb

Is it just me or is his head way too small proportionally to the rest of him?

M101-4/5 Ruth. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: clown with a badly broken leg.

Nice idea on a thread topic...

I think the e90 Jax is just ugly as all hell...

The t3 Cobb does seem to have a tiny head...kinda thought that was just me but I am glad someone else sees it...
