Another June Pickup and another Rack Pack!  First time getting a pack with the #616 (Black Box) and Randy Johnson (full black scoreboard).

June Pickups

Picked up a couple additions recently.  First is a Black Box with a 'middle - left' print dot on the bat knob.  Unfortunately, after comparing it to my other cards, I already have this exact example.  Even the black box has a nice off set look to it.  Oh well.  Second is another rack pack with a Kirk Gibson along side the #616 on top.  The Ripken is a rounded Black Box plane with straight upper left white stripe.

Custom Bobblehead and SLU figures

Patricks-Custom-Painting

Found Patrick's facebook via eBay.  He does great work at very reasonable prices!  His attention to detail (even the knobs of the bats) is amazing.

The bobblehead I used was the 2018 Hagerstown Suns Ripken.  Perfect addition to my collection.

Black Box card with print overlay?

Picked up this Black Box version several months ago - because something looked different.  After looking over all the uncut sheets, I'm pretty sure this extra ink on top is from card #43 - Roger McDowell.  McDowell's card is found on a separate sheet from the Ripken but in the same spot.  Another neat addition to the collection.  👍

Future Man Cave material??

I was looking for YEARS to find an authentic late 80s Orioles road jersey.  The search ended late last year and I got it customized to my liking 😀.  Hope this will end up on a wall in the near future.

Another Scribble w/ F 'Swirl' marks?

Joey R found a Scribble w/ F with the same or similar extra marks around the main area.  It's the first time I've seen another example of this.  Not quite as many marks - but the pattern is the same.


Above are pictures of the new card, my card and below is a GIF file showing the transformation (1.32MB file).

New additons via a trade

Made a nice trade for a few oddball type FF cards.  Here are a few:
1) Black Box with a small print dot in the lower right corner of the bat knob.
2) Black Box with a print dot on the letter N.
3) FF Saw-cut with the cut hitting the left side of the bat knob
