Another new pickup for December. Just a regular Black Box with a couple oddball print dots and a black ink shift on the back. Something different for the collection. Cheap addition!

A couple FF "Mystery" cards popped up on eBay recently. Nothing new here but these are Graded and or Authenticated by PSA. Based on the prices these sold for - the buyers knew what they were getting. They sold for roughly twice what a normal PSA 9 would sell for.

More Mystery FF card info.
The only information from this find that is worth noting is that these cards came from the Philadelphia area (think Fleer). To me, that increases the possibility that these originated at Fleer. Who knows? The hunt for info continues......

Recently traded w/ Brian G. for these two beauties.
1) FF card with a neat doubled ink front. The entire front!
2) FF card with a 'crimped' right edge. Card was pulled from a rack pack and sealed with the packaging.
Great start to 2022!

Courtesy of Bill H. (Instagram - Cal_lected). An official lineup card from the June 25th, 1988 Orioles game vs Boston. The weekend series vs the Red Sox where the FF picture was taken by photographer Steve Babineau. Signed by manager Frank Robinson! It was Cal Ripken Jr's milestone 1000th consecutive game! He also hit a 1st inning HR. Billy was 0-3.
Included my recent pickup of a ticket from that game.

Never thought I'd see this. A couple months ago, I saw a few images online of a Star Wars parody action figure with a trading card attached featuring someone with a #7 baseball jersey and something written on the end of the bat......
That intrigued me. Who did this? Why was it done? The Force is strong with this one!
"Yak Face" was seen for a second or two on Jabba the Hut's ship in Return of the Jedi. In 1985, Kenner concluded their production of action figures and "Yak" was only sent out to Canada and Europe for retail. He became a rarity to collectors and developed a cult following. Yak has his own website for collectors: yakface.com & on Instagram.
According to Wookieepedia, Yak Face's real name is Saelt-Marae and is described as a con-man. He supposedly survived the explosion on Jabba'a barge. Sean Crawford is credited as the mime artist/puppeteer in the movie. His birthdate is 11/13/58 - and they listed that on the back of the cards.
I reached out to Katerpillar and was sent a dozen cards - all the different versions. Very impressive. Black Box, Whiteout, refractors, B/W "Test Run" version and even a FACE auto. All with fully detailed backs. So cool! Thanks guys! Check out their work. Yakmoe "Face" Facinski. Yet another F@#K "FACE"!
