Card: 2008 Allen & Ginter #AGR-AFI Allen Fisher Apparel Relic
From: Hobby Box
Why I Love This Card: Come on, dude is an arm wrestler. Basically, he can break your arm just by using his arm. Think about that. Now I have a piece of his shirt. Under normal circumstances, if you'd want a piece of his shirt, you'd have to agree to have your arm broken.
More Fisher Facts:
*Back in 2006, Topps agreed to name its newest retro-themed product, Allen & Ginter, after Allen Fisher after he challenged a printing press to an arm wrestling match. Fisher won, and the Topps production line suffered a two-week setback (parts).
*Fisher's right arm is actually a thigh.
*Invented Fisher-Price People, then took all of their arms.
*Spearheaded a bid to make arm wrestling an Olympic sport, carried the effort through to the point where it was a demonstration sport, revoked his support, then proceeded to win the gold medal in the 200m breast stroke.
*Surprisingly, he uses an off-brand baking soda.
*The hair from Fisher's right arm is used to manufacture 90% of the world's Easter grass. That from his left arm has been mixed into a potion that helps dyslexic children focus better.
