Default Has this newest card release gone too far? This is downright creepy & gross

Forgive me for the new release article here, but from my last article, I can tell this is the happenin' forum! If it is just not allowed to have this article here in the pre-war forum, please delete as I have it in the modern already, but thought you all would get a kick out of this too.
---------------------------------------

A good friend of mine (who is a full-time dealer in the area) sent over the selling brochure of a new card release.

Apparently it is the most polarizing card issue ever created, because while most dealers have been made privy to them, many flat out refuse to carry them. Those who don't hate them are trying to get their hands on as many cases as they can before they dry up.

My friend says it is set to a limited print run of 30 cases, with 5 boxes per case, 3 packs per box and 4 cards par pack. The design looks gorgeous, but I must admit, this is out there.

I'm not supposed to show the selling brochure as it is supposed to be dealer only, but I just had to post it, because I cannot find a single thing online about it!

I was told that the autograph mention below is a jab at 2015 Tribute.

Very slick looking patch cards. I like how they do not hide behind any legaleze and make it hard to determine if the jerseys are game worn or not. I'd rather game worn, but as long as the players wore them, I'm good.


I have no problems with this - this is cool!


As a fan, I love this. I do find it a bit tasteless though. How would you like your face on
a card when you just broke your ankle?


This is cool, but the back disclaimer makes me feel dirty.


How do they get these "relics"?!?!


Odd, but at least Canseco is in it!


How is this even legal?


Regardless of how "out there" this is, I'm totally buying.


If you haven't already guessed it, Four One is only available at Mouschi's

Here is a little larger view of all the cards used, just for grins.





















The following players were not harmed in the making of this sell sheet article: Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, Brian Wilson, Derek Jeter, Jose Fernandez, Mike Trout, Yasiel Puig, Nolan Ryan, Alex Rodriguez, Kris Bryant.

Nice work - I knew pretty early on it was an April Fools joke, but kept reading because they got increasingly funny. I didn't get the "Four One" until the end though.

It's a scientific fact that Brian Wilson's beard hair can give a normal person superhuman strength and has even cured cancer in lab rats.

Thanks guys, for all of the comments - Remember that Canseco game used batting practice jersey I got that had pills in the pocket? Well, I ground one up and made an actual card. Here it is:



Boy, do I feel like a druggie!

Figured it out when I saw:

When you said intimate relics, I was thinking boxers or jock straps... very concerning. Hilarious. Net54 is a great place to hang out on April 1!

Knew it was a hoax when there wasn't tin foil and a BIC lighter next to the spoon. Fool, you could've marketed it as the Free Base subset!

Hahaha...you know but what frightens me is that I wouldn't put it past the manufacturers to make some of these after all...

I was thinking piece of cigarette filter and needle.

You got some awesome photo shop skills Mouschi.
