Topps unveils the world’s largest baseball card

Feb 12, 2013, 5:41 PM EDT

Welp. I guess I should no longer feel happy about that Topps Super 1969 Rod Carew I’ve been holding on to:

 

Careful. You get grass stains on those corners and the guy at the card shop is gonna try to bone you out of a couple bucks on it when you try to sell it to him.

    They just took it from mint to near mint by walking all over it

    Considering the girth of Prince Fielder, this was the only way to fit him on a baseball card.

    Baseball cards have been a joke since about 1992, or whenever it was they started adding about 2343453450830459345 subsets, collector’s items, cd-rom discs, diamonds, and whatever other crap into their cards…thereby turning it into a lottery. I remember when card sets had ONE card per player.

    Need a frickin’ crane to flip that baby. But imagine how big the stick of gum must be …

    Why? I can think of at least 652 better uses for the time and resources that went into that waste.. things that would actually benefit humanity. And Topps would have gotten better pub out of it too.

    And somewhere, Vince Young is filling out a loan application right now. Boom
