Ah … Friday!

Your work week (or school week) is almost done, and you’re ready to kick back and enjoy the weekend.

No other day of the week has as tangible a feeling as does Friday … it’s that now Twitter-famous #FridayFeeling.

Too bad you can’t make every day feel like Friday, right?

Well, you can. Sort of.

As with most areas of life, you need only to turn to your baseball cards to help solve your midweek blues or to really embrace the splendors of Friday. I’m sure you have fun, relaxing, quirky, or exciting cards nestled in every corner of your own collection that fit the bill, but here are 10 fun and classic baseball cards that will make every day feel like Friday — at least if you squint and tilt your head the right way..

1954 Topps Ed and John O’Brien

The original Doublemint Twins, at least as far as most vintage collectors are concerned. Who doesn’t love this gem featuring the O’Brien brothers?

1955 Bowman Don Mossi

Why couldn’t any card manufacturer ever feature Don Mossi in profile rather than in full frontal glory? Because then we’d be denied joys like this card, where Mossi himself seems to be the antenna for the TV in which he appears.

1959 Fleer Ted Williams — Gunning as a Pastime

Ted Williams led a varied and fascinating life, but he liked to kick back with some serious hunting. What better time to do that than on the weekends?

1969 Topps Aurelio Rodriguez

Umm … that’s not Aurelio Rodriguez. It’s the Angels bat boy, and their little prank turned a ho-hum 1969 Topps card into a winner for the ages.

1976 Topps Kurt Bevacqua Bubble Gum Blowing Champ

This card is so famous it’s almost a cliche — but you can’t have a list like this without it.

1976 Topps Traded Oscar Gamble

The card whereby Oscar Gamble instantly relegated generations of Afros to the status of “afterthought.” No one before or since has made this kind of cap-defying impact with such a devil-may-care expression.

1984 Fleer Jay Johnstone

This card fought hard with the Glenn Hubbard snake offering but Jay Johnstone wins out for his weekend-themed hat and a glassy eyes that suggest he may have a head start on us.

1986 Fleer Mickey Hatcher

How did Mickey Hatcher not win a couple dozen Gold Gloves with that hunk of leather?

1993 Topps Stadium Club Oscar Azocar

Oscar Azocar may have loved his bat, but it evidently was not quite as fond as him, as evidenced by his .228 batting average of 460 Major League plate appearance.
