These 10 baseball players have uncanny doppelgangers in old artwork
"Surely there was a person who looked just like me in a famous work of art from hundreds of years ago" is a common thought shared by many people as they lay in bed. Until recently, that was the best we could hope for -- just thoughts. Then Google updated their Arts and Culture app and suddenly, the truth was revealed. Everyone on the internet wanted to see who their artistic doppelganger was.

Alternate title: "Death of a Salesman."
A smile bright enough to light an entire block.
Is this a look we should expect from Stroman next year?
Would anyone really be surprised if Martinez styled his hair like a golden cap?
We always knew Bryant was a Victorian aristocrat. We just didn't have proof.
Sadly, Vin Scully never called Kershaw, the "van Gogh of pitchers."
I can only hope that Kluber's alias is "Thomas Cool."
