New FF pickup

Finally replaced a pack I mistakenly let go some time ago.  It's a Square Edge Black Box on the top of a cello pack.  Collection hole filled.

New Baseball card shop?

Saw this across the street from a hotel I stayed at recently.  Yes, I was curious....  Nope, not a card shop.

FF Sawcut Pickup

Picked up this nice (badly off centered) FF Sawcut.  Has a little of the bottom white border on the back exposed.  Nice addition that goes with a similar one that is more top to bottom miscut than this one.  Thanks Lenny!

Gummy Arts

Resisted picking up one of these for months.  Until now....  Produced early this year by Gummy Arts.  Fun addition related to the FF.

FF w/ Blue Offset ink PSA 8

Not a new card but couldn't resist picking up another.  FF version with a nice blue ink offset.  The PSA grade is a plus.

New Rack Pack

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

April Pickup

Found this Black Box PSA 8 with a nice print offset.  Unfortunately, I already have the exact same card.  Oops!

March 2019 recent pickups

Picked up a couple new additions this month.  The first is a Scribble w/F rack pack with Kirk Gibson on top.  Coming out right after his memorable HR in 1988, this card was a keeper in 1989.
The 2nd is a badly off centered Black Box card.  Nothing special - just different.

New FF Rack Pack

Not sure if I've seen another '89 Fleer rack pack with one of the cards reversed.  Especially nice to see one with a FF on top too!

New Pickup - FF Sawcut w/ 2 cuts

Recently picked up a nice FF with what looks like 2 sawcuts side by side.  Nice addition to the collection.  It also has a nice print dot on the letter B.

New FF related item pickup

Always looking for anything related to the FF!  Found this ticket from the Orioles/Red Sox series in June 1988 (The weekend the card's photo was taken).  The Sox scored 7 in the bottom on the 8th to win 10-3.  Billy was 0-3.
