March Pickup - Black Box with multiple print dots

 New pickup this week.  A regular rounded edge Black Box version with 3 irregular print dots on the front.  Not sure if I've seen one like it before.  Cheap fun!

Black Scribble w/ Loop Sawcut pickup

 New pickup for 2021.  It's a lower grade Black Scribble w/ Loop that has a factory sawcut.  Nothing special.  Creased and dirty.  Cheap addition.  The sawcut is under the knob of the bat.  I didn't have that version with that cut location - so why not?  Something new and different.

1990 Pacific Senior League Jim Nettles

 Found an article from around 2010 covering the 1990 Pacific Jim Nettles A$$ Hole card.

This card can be found with 3 (maybe 4) versions.  

The AH version, Glossy partially corrected, Regular fully corrected and a print defect that has the regular corrected version missing the upper horizontal black line under the yellow stars.  I also got one autographed several years ago.

Whiteouts and a card from Frank Mustin

 I acquired an odd card last year and decided to do a write-up about it.  I posted in under the 'Fleer' tab and labeled it 'Frank Mustin'

Fleer - Frank Mustin Link


Four cut corners, white mark created by an eraser? and handwriting on it.  Frank Mustin was the head of Fleer in 1989 and this card came from his estate following his death in 2018.  Could this help explain the mysterious Whiteout variation?

1995 Collector's Sportlook Magazine

 Thanks to Donovan for sending a page from the January 1995 edition of Collector's Sportlook.  It has a 'Trivia' page mentioning the FF!  Added it to the Articles page as well.

1985 Daytona Islanders XRC Billy Ripken

 Not related to the FF in anyway but picked up a 1985 Daytona Islander team set with Billy's first ever (I think) card.  Cheap fun!
