As Promised, Gayest. Card. Ever.
Discovered in the snack shop at work, hi-res photos courtesy mr_sarabi. Yes, I'm going back to see if there are any more copies of it, because I must have one to keep and more to send to people.

Yes, it's clearly meant to be a child's card, but... but... but...

The Cover



For the full effect here you have to know that the text on the front and inside is gilt, which doesn't quite reveal itself in the photo-lighting.


The Inside



Yes, it's a pop-up. With a large baseball bat centrally displayed, because we needed more repressed uber-masculine imagery.

Or as it was obviously meant to appear when signed...

I have never seen anything quite like this before. I can't even--dude--WTF is up with the Nike product placement?!! I think Nike might have paid too much for the ad space on Hallmark's "Bobby and Steve" line of greeting cards.

It's not even "A Tiny Little Really Really Gay Division Of Hallmark." The only publisher's mark is "Pop-Up - made in Taiwan."
