Default Ugliest Baseball Card Insert Ever!

So I was getting some stuff and I swear, those 2014 Bowman Chrome Fire Die Cut Inserts are one of the ugliest Inserts imo. After being reminded of that, thought I'd see what your thoughts were on the ugliest baseball card insert you've ever seen.

Especially when you show the worst card in the set.

What were those inserts that were made out of plastic and had water and glitter inside?

Oh man, I forgot all about those Wave of the Futures. That's going to be tough to beat.

I thought the 2012 Bowman Bowman's Best insert was kind of ugly. Looked bout like a half circle or curve.

I actually think the Wave of the Futures are cool. Recently though, I don't think anything comes near the Bowman Chrome Fire Inserts. These could've been so much better, especially with those names.

Most inserts in every Bowman Draft look like trash. Especially the draft night ones.

2017 Leaf Best of Baseball - I love acetate cards, but these are hideous. I know they are a tribute to 1991 Leaf, but that doesn't make it any better.

What, you don't like cards that are 50% border? I'm in the minority because I liked 1991 Leaf, but that's only because I wasn't collecting in 1990. I'm sure Leaf would have been my crack of choice that year.

I'm also in the minority in liking Flair Waves. I mean, glitter and water(?) in a sealed plastic sleeve? How is that not awesome in a totally 90s way? If they only had a better checklist they'd be ridiculously expensive today.

This insert set made me realize I didn't HAVE to get every Frank Thomas card. They couldn't have had their design intern spend more than 5 seconds coming up with this.

Those are easily my pick. Gross cards.

When I read the thread title and clicked, I was thinking about this card.
