Here we have a souvenir from the serial killer Hall of Fame: the classic Anders Hedberg card from O-Pee-Chee’s 1976-77 World Hockey Association set. Hedberg was one hell of a hockey player in his heyday back in the 1970s, and he was never known for violent behaviour, but Jesus, looking at that mug I’d rather tango with Steve Durbano high on angel dust.
Yikes! Look at old Crazy Eyes there! You mean to tell me that there was NOT ONE SINGLE PHOTOGRAPH they could find to slap on this card? Not a depressing black-and-white passport photo, a mugshot, a shot of him as Abraham Lincoln in his fifth grade school play? Nothing? Seriously, how crazy a look is that? Take a minute and compare Hedberg, good old “Dr. Hook” from Slap Shot and oh, just for shits and giggles, Hannibal Lecter, and tell me Hedberg doesn’t look the craziest of the bunch.
I could actually believe Hedberg saying, “I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.”
