Excessive Cam Bearing Wear?

Looks wicked excessive to me but I don't know what "normal" wear looks like. What would cause this? Just the bearings disintegrating?

Wow. I'll bet that's what mine looked like right before it walked down the camshaft and the engine made a sudden, but subtle noise and no longer ran.....

Do you know if those are the original cam bearings?

Those look melty to me. No oil for long periods of time.

Could oil pressure be within spec(checked at the filter housing) and the cam still be oil starved?

@Sonoros, I don't know if they are the bearings fitted by the factory, Turner said they are the original LR machined finish, so I assume they were in there since new and not replacement LR bearings.

New cam, retaining plate, tappet assemblies, pushrods are going in the new short block, just trying to figure out what may have gone on. Haven't pulled the pistons out yet, probably have an answer to the knock when I do.
