The biggest baseball card you’ve ever seen

Now…about that Stretch McCovey card.

fc

Topps, famous purveyors of baseball cards, have unveiled the biggest baseball card in the history of big baseball cards. Somewhat fittingly, the record-smothering card is of Prince Fielder, who is himself large and often in charge. The card’s sprawl, though, is larger than a steering committee of Prince Fielders.

Knowing Topps they'll slice that card up into hundreds of cards and insert them into packs to see if someone will try to collect them all.

Good thing baseball cards no longer come packed with bubble gum.

There'd better be a giant top loader for this. I'd hate to see a truck run over it and ding a corner.

Too bad Godzilla's mom threw it out.

The Martians are wondering tonight, "What did we ever do to make them call us "FUCK FACE"?
