1989 FLEER Baseball Card
Billy Ripken (Rookie)
"F*ck Face" Error Card!
Condition: Near Mint - Mint (NM-M), Looks like it just came out of the pack!
Original, not a reprint! Highly collectible and very RARE error card. Billy's teammates decided to play a prank on him by writing "F*ck Face" (substitute * for a u). This error was missed by FLEER and put out into circulation, after the error was caught the remaining unsold cards were recalled. By that time a decent amount had been released to collectors and baseball fans across the country. When this error was first resold in the marketplace it commanded an extremely high premium. Although it doesn't command the same premium it once did, it's still a fairly expensive card (especially from a late 80s FLEER card). But don't be fooled, this card is still in high demand and can be pretty difficult to find, especially if you're not wanting to pay market value. If you weren't lucky enough to find one as a kid when they were released, here's your chance to buy a little of your childhood back. If you weren't thought of yet when this card came out, well, you're in luck. Here's your chance to buy an amazing, not to mention hilarious, piece of baseball (card) history. It's definitely a conversation piece and is sure to get a laugh from your friends. Even if you aren't a card collector, this is one card people make an exception for. Thanks for looking, any questions please ask!
