Cardboard Mystery: Vicente Romo and the Lipstick?

This card has corny glory unlike few others. Is Vicente Romo supposed to look like he's fielding his position, or is he getting into stance to kick your ass? Give it took the Sox so many decades to win the big one, I'll go with the former. I mean, there's more than one fielding gaff that might be explained away like that.

My favorite part of this card? Check out his lips. This could be due to any number of causes (bad printing, bad child, bad photographer) but it looks like Romo is wearing lipstick. Which is cool, but a little strange on a baseball card. I mean, what was he thinking/doing just prior to this?

Does anyone else have this card, and does it look like he's wearing lipstick?
