Ripken, Bill 1989 Fleer Black Box Error Rookie


1989 Fleer #616 Bill Ripken Rookie Black Box Error card (Baltimore Orioles) in mint condition. Shortly after Fleer released its set of 1989 baseball trading cards, collectors noticed something unusual about the card featuring Bill Ripken: letters printed in black marker on the knob of his bat. The letters were easily readable upon close examination, and they clearly spelled out the phrase 'F-CK FACE.' After the discovery became public subsequent printings of the card were issued with the offending words covered up various ways. This one is the black box variation.
