Default Just Plain Silly Cards

I have this one so lets see yours.

I made this thing easily 10 years ago. It has 9 different versions of the famous knob end. I usually keep it in this thick screw down to make sure it is safe.

There are a lot of versions.
4-different black box versions
3-common scribbles No F, Loop, and regular scribble
1-semi rare scribble White Scribble
4-rare scribbles versions known as Circle Scribbles
The king of error cards the original F Face
Then most of these can be found with a factory saw cut. Plus many print errors for the more crazy collector.

Then you have the Whiteout, Mystery card, Hole Punch and the B/W Test Issue. For the dreamers.

Then if you are bat sheep crazy like a few of us you have some silly only known versions that also have variations of those versions.

Overall an amazing card to collect with some great people collecting them. Sadly we have lost by far my all time favorite FF guy due to getting out of the hobby because of age.

Back a few years ago when I was making custom cards I made several Randy Johnson Marlboro cards. Made a few superfractors and a lot of different colored refractors. I think some are posted in the Randy Johnson thread.

Have you seen all the 2024 Series 2 Jackson Holliday versions yet Ben? I figured you would love the tribute with blackout and scribbles

No I hadn't seen them. I rarely look at any card from the 2000s. Those are cool and with the asking prices they are definitely just plain silly.

I saw a blogger talking about them and thought of you right off. Yes, those initial excitement prices are ridiculous, lol.
