1989 Fleer #548
You've got to wonder... why would anyone want to do this to The Kid? Griffey is the epitome of "fan favorite". And it's not like this card was ever considered a common. Plus... this isn't your ordinary, everyday crease. This card is severely creased with multiple veins shooting across Mr. Griffey's face and card back.
At least the previous owner valued the card enough to put it into a screwdown holder:
By the way, this is one of those non-recessed holder, so I'm thinking the guy was hoping to somehow fix this card by flattening it over time. I've got to give the guy credit for his optimism, even if it obviously didn't help.
But that's okay... this card no longer has to suffer from loneliness and squishiness. It's new home is in my Damaged Card Binder, where it hangs out with others just like him.
Happy Birthday Mr. Griffey!
As for everyone else... happy Thursday and sayonara!
