I was browsing the bay and was reminded of those Cal Ripken thumbprint cards that they had back in the early 90s. Thought I'd ask you guys what your favorite "odd ball" cards have been over the years.

I'm relatively new to the hobby, so I'd be curious to see what I missed over the years. What's your favorite novelty card/set?
im new as well, but i want to see a MLB tattoos set, those would make for some great back card reading.
Not baseball, but I liked the 1997 first and ten chip shots that were poker chips in each pack. Also for basketball I love the dunk n go nuts cards.

Back in 1986, there were tattoo cards put out by Topps.

When I think of oddball, I think of unlicensed. You know, like Wayne's Ryan/Ventura fight card. Quite a few of the ones on here so far are licensed cards.

And when I say unlicensed, I mean cards that aren't Graded by Beckett.

Is O-Pee-Chee really looked upon as odd ball down in the states? I'm not complaining for all I know they are. Living in Canada I don't see Topps of that era as odd, not even when I was a kid. I mean to me that was just the norm growing up.
No. I don't think O-Pee-Chee is oddball. Like I said above, I count oddball as cards that Beckett won't Grade.

O-Pee-Chee isn't odd but were a rarity when buying packs way back. I do remember a small newspaper/candy store that had both Topps & OPC hockey wax packs.
