I haven't posted one of these in a while, but there is most definitely still a wish list, and it most definitely grows by the day. Unlike the previous 2 cards on my wish list (here & here), this one is affordable (for the most part), and not quite as desirable. As far as I know, this is the original "error" card or "gimmick" card and since it's from the late 80's, there should be a ton of them still around. There are 4 or 5 different versions of this card out there, some blur out the profanity on his bat knob, others cover it with a black box. Me... I want the straight up profane version. Call me childish or immature, but there's just something about an F-bomb on a baseball card that really cracks me up.
I'm sure everyone knows by now that I am talking about this card
1989 Fleer Bill Ripken error card - The effing profane version
Whenever I see '89 Fleer packs, I buy them hoping to pull this card. If there are packs of '89 Fleer in my repack box, I am happy about that as well. If I pulled the Griffey rookie from this set, I would trade it away in a heartbeat for a Bill Ripken error card.
If anyone out there has this card (the effing profane version) and would be willing to trade it, please contact me. I've been dreaming of owning this card since I first laid eyes on it as an 8 year old boy... who thought the "f" word was hilarious.
Some things never change.
