Fun Card Friday- Not so fun

Getting hit in the face by a baseball traveling 110 mph sure can't be fun, however, it can lead to a post for Fun Card Friday!

Liz McGuire, a young Toronto Blue Jays fan, was hit in the face by a Bo Bichette baseball last Friday, May 17th.

1️⃣1️⃣0️⃣- Topps produced exactly 110 Topps NOW of the above card, and sent all of them to Lizz.

She has put a few of the cards up for auction, w/ some of the proceeds going to Holland Bloorview Childrens Hospital

You can bid here... Liz McGuire Topps NOW Card.

😊 Topps takes a lot of grief for some if the things they do, and yet, they find a way sometimes to just do a cool thing like this...which is, for myself, is part of why collecting cards is FUN!

πŸ’™πŸ’™ Here's hoping that Liz recovers quickly and can get back to going to Blue Jays games soon.

😊 As always, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my blog,  appreciate ya'll very much!

Oh, and, as always, Play BALL! ⚾️


  1. This didn't show up on my feed for some reason.

    It must have hurt big time. But I guess if it had been a bit lower she'd be out some teeth.

  2. Amazing that she both stayed conscious and stayed at the game. That lump looks brutal. Hope she's okay.

  3. Ouch. Glad she's okay. Kudos to Topps for doing this for her... and kudos to hear for raising money for that children's hospital. Looks like some collectors are willing to open up their wallets to help out a good cause, because all four of the auctions are over $800 with over a week left.

    1. Absolutely, it's terrific whats she's done with the unfortunate welt on her forehead.

  4. She didn't even get the ball that smacked her! The person that snagged it kept it. Glad Liz is taking advantage of the situation for a good cause. Smacks to the head are no fun, hope she has a speedy recovery!
