Baseball Season





If you head over to J.E. Daniels' great blog, you can see a selection of Upper Deck's "Comic Ball" Looney Tunes cards from 1990. These cartoons, when collected, would form an original baseball-themed comic book story written and drawn by Chuck Jones. As Daniels points out, Upper Deck did three more series of "Comic Ball" cards but the later series didn't have the Jones artwork, but instead had the LT characters interacting with real-life baseball stars like Reggie Jackson.

I have some of those original Jones cards. Never really liked the "chicken scratch" way the characters were drawn, honestly.

I remember that the 3rd or 4th series actual dealt with the NFL.

Yeah, the 4th series of "Comic Ball" cards was NFL themed.
