I've never owned that card. I have a few 89 Fleer sets, but they're all the blackout version, I believe.

I heard Jayson Smith talking about this on the radio the other night and got a kick out of it. They were talking about how the positioning of the phrase was just too perfect and how there was almost no way there wasn't some intent on the part of someone. I am a pretty big collector, and this has got to be one of my top 5 stories within the realm of collecting in the last 15 years though ;-)

I love goofy cards, intentional or not.

My all-time favorite Chipper card is not his rookie 1991 Bowman, but his 92 Bowman:

The unedited books for $15 and can be found for anywhere between $5 and $100 ( :-S ) by doing a Google search it comes up with some results. I'll do the work for you. I may take a trip to my favorite store and see if he has one first.

No doubt. When it comes to cards that are must haves for any serious collector, it ranks up there with the 89 UD Girffey as a must own.

Rick face..... Lolz

The whiteout version books for $120, it may be worth double checking...
