Bargain Bin Finds: 1989 Billy Ripken Scribble-Out
My most recent bargain bin find was not one of monetary significance, but rather one of coolness. It was a 1989 Billy Ripken F@*k Face Scribble-out. This gem was buried in a stack of Black Box versions of the same card, and at first glance it can almost be mistaken for its more common version. The visual similarities are most likely why the card was in the bargain bin.
Most are unaware, but the scribble-out Ripken card has a couple of variations. In this version, the scribble has not covered the full text and the letter “F” in the word F@*k is still partially visible. The rarer variant has the word completely scribbled out.
