mysteries debunked

growing up as a baseball obsessed kid i collected my fair share of baseball cards. one of the holy grail cards was the infamous billy ripken "fuck face" card which, as legend had it, was the result of a practical joke by one or several of his teammates.

well it looks like the mystery has finally been solved thanks to this sweet article from turns out he wrote "fuck face" on the bottom of the bat himself and didn't realize he was using the bat he used for the fleer photo shoot. to make matters even more hilarious he claims that fleer "enhanced" the words on the bottom of the bat so they could be read more clearly. one less cold case for the world to solve...
