"Test Run" info

Beckett Article

100% fake.  Don't be fooled.  Yes, I have one but it's a homemade creation.  Novelty only.

Topps Vault picture from 1988

New pickup.  A nice 'Topps Vault' approved print of Billy from 1988.  Wearing the #7 jersey and showing the knob of the bat.  Not the FF bat, but shows the initials BR.  It's very similar to the R161 bat I have from 1988. 

Have to wonder if a FF picture exists.....

Not Fleer, not a baseball card but a neat a addition to the FF collection.

April Pickup

Picked up a nice Loop Scribble saw-cut.  It was less than $3 - hard to pass up.  Long, slightly angled cut reaching the neck.

New Pickups for March

Huge thanks to Brian K. in CA!!!  Brian reached out to me and said he had some items to send my way.  FOR FREE.  First is a Loop Scribble Saw-Cut on top of a cello pack - a first for me.  He also threw in 3 rack packs with the Black Box (rounded w/ jagged white line) showing on top.  A big thanks to Brian.

New Saw-Cut Rack Pack

Love sealed rack packs with Saw-Cut versions showing.  Added this one to my collection:
I noticed the Atlanta Braves player behind the Ripken.  Normally, Brewers pitcher Chuck Crim is the card behind the Ripken in the sorting sequence.  I thought that maybe Saw-Cut versions were inserted where ever - not in a normal sequence.  I decided to look at other Saw-Cut rack packs and found Ted Simmons hiding (upside down) behind the Ripken on 3 of the 4 packs I own.  Of course, Chuck Crim (right side up) is on the other one.  Interesting that Saw-Cut cards ended up in a different sequence - at least part of the time.  Here is a picture of all 4 of my packs:

New Autograph!

Big Thanks to Ken R. from GA!!!
He found this card in his collection and stumbled upon my website looking up information on it.
The card is signed by Steve Babineau.  The guy that snapped the FF photo!  Ken wanted me to have this card and I'm very grateful. 
It was signed during Spring Training in 1990.  "OOPS"
