While doing some tidying up around the office I happened upon a set of 1991 Studio baseball cards, a throwback to the simpler days of cardboard and one that still remains unique to this day.
Why? Every player, coach and manager in the set is pictured in a black-and-white portrait — something that really wasn’t done all that much then or really since.
As I flipped through the cards, there was a smattering of a few names I hadn’t seen in some time — a mix of journeymen, once-promising rookies, stars who are now retired and in the Hall of Fame. Some were cards I never landed in my collection for whatever reason and others were photos with images so weird you just couldn’t forget.
And while I exmanined this still unique, but simple, set it occurred to me that a few of the names I knew so well back in those days didn’t jump out at me as well without some color and maybe some uniform logos.
I want to know whether you can name the 16 players shown here — I’ve removed their names (and in some cases team logos) to make the challenge a bit tougher.
Some should be obvious, while others might not be … can you name them all?
See all 16 after the jump.

Oh, and we’ll pick one of the responses with all of the correct answers and reward a little prize, too …
