Default Another great story because of a great member

I know this is not pre-war. I collect the famous 1989 Fleer Bill Ripken error card and many of its rare error versions. I post some of my pick ups in the proper section and another awesome member seen them. He went to an event tonight that Billy was speaking at and got this card signed for me.

The awesome member PMed me and asked if I would like something signed and to send it to him. He never asked for a single thing to do this very nice act for me.

There are some great people on this forum, Thank you Tony!

Very nice for that person to think of you. I like the “fish face.”

Terrific story Ben.

Also pretty cool of Ripken to sign something that was making fun of a "card situation" he was in.

Just awesome. And I think there are a lot of stories like this out there. I have had members contacting me wanting to help with my McGraw back run. Lots of good people looking out for others and their interests and collections. Very cool.

I looked up the card because I thought it was so cool. The back of the card implies that Bart is to blame for writing "fishface" on the bat. If you look closely on the image, you will see Bart in the background holding a sharpie (the sharpie is covered up on this one with the middle of the "B" in "Ben"). It's from a1994 Skybox release. I really love this: especially for a guy who collects variations of that error card.

Great job Tony! Way to help out a board member. Love stories like this!

Billy's legacy will always be the '89 Fleer card. I like the way he normally personalizes signatures with the phrase "Good Luck". The last 3 letters are a match to the knob of his bat on the '89 Fleer card. It was always his way of saying "Yeah, I did it" before he officially came out and admitted it.
