Default Willy Dipkin

Yes, you read that right.

Willy "The Dupe" Dipkin was, of course, Second Baseman for the Springfield Isotopes. His "Fish Face" card is one of the more valuable issues from the late 20th Century. Can you imagine kids going to the local hobby shop and plunking their allowance on the counter to buy this? Even worse, they packaged it inside a comic book! Perish the thought...

In all seriousness, I found this while going through a comic collection I bought last year. I thought it'd be cool to show the book and card.

Not a buy/sell/trade post. I like silly things like this and plan to keep it.

A very cool collectable card and magazine. The rare version of the card is the P4 DIAMOND Promo card. The bat knob is larger on the Promo card. Here is mine that an awesome fellow member got Billy to sign for me.

Yup, and the Diamond Distribution promo has a completely different back. It makes it pretty easy to tell the difference between the two.


P.S. That auto'ed version with Billy Ripken's signature is f***ing awesome!

Pretty nice, but it isn't the Carl Yastrzemski from 1973 when he had big sideburns
