An Amityville Horror Baseball Card?

As a boy I was a huge baseball card collector. However, as I got older and the hobby became more sophisticated (i.e. ridiculously expensive) my enthusiasm for it all started to wane. Recently though my interest in the hobby was again piqued and as I was doing some web based research on some of the latest offerings I stumbled across this card:
Allen & Ginter Amityville Card
As a part of the 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball card set the Uninvited Guests 10 card subset features “paranormal spooky tales, eerie hauntings, and supernatural events”. And card #UG5 features none other than the world famous Dutch-Colonial that sits at 112 Ocean Avenue in Long Island, The Amityville House.

While I’m a bit disappointed that the artwork on the card features the “new” upstairs windows instead of those classic, eerie “eye” windows that made the house that much scarier, its still cool to think that there is a collectible card that features one of the most purported haunted houses in the world. Another plus is that the card will only set you back a couple of bucks on eBay.
