Ben Henry's "Casey At The Bat" Poster

(Ben Henry's "Casey At The Bat", adapted for cardboard.

I got one of these recently, one of the more brilliantly nerdy things I've ever seen in my life. Basically, Ben Henry of The Baseball Card Blog took Ernest Thayer's poem "Casey At The Bat" and set it to baseball cards he felt appropriate to the text. It's a Herculean effort of Photoshop prowess, funny, poignant, and done with an assortment of some of the best cards ever made. He's selling them for $26.50 shipped, and if you're lucky, he may still have one of the first 50, which he's signed and numbered. You can order the poster and read more about its origins here.
