Default This is the actual picture in an eBay listing...

No, someone hasn't snuck up to you with a chloroform soaked rag, this is actually the photograph being used to sell a card on eBay...

The PSA qualifier of OF (out of focus) will not work. They need an HZ (hazy) or BF (blurred to f*ck) qualifier for this one.

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980s.

Maybe it's blurry so we don't see that his pants are unbuttoned.

The laziness of the seller or the haziness of the picture?

Is that Joe Shlabotnik's Rookie card?

Seems about right, if it is.

It's amazing! When I take my glasses off, the card is in focus. Also, when I stare at it long enough I can see the Pyramids in the middle of the card in 3D

Whoa, guys, I think we were too quick to judge!!!!!!!!

After carefully applying some blur-reducing software to the image, it turns out this card might very well be a diamond in the rough!!!!! Uh oh...someone better not beat me to the Buy-It-Now button!!!!!!!!!
