I can’t lie, this news completely blindsided me. I mean you find out Santa Claus isn’t real after years of doubting him and aren’t all that shocked once your parents admit to this gigantic lie. But never in a million years did I see the most sought after card of my youth being some airbrushed Frankenstein. A small group of people said they knew about the card, but there are also a ton of people that had their childhoods die right along with mine once this picture hit the Internet. Just brutal.
But I swear, if I find out that the Billy Ripken Fuck Face card was all some elaborate hoax, I may just retire from being a sports fan. I blew it up to a 24×36 poster and it’s probably my most treasured possession.
