I can’t make this stuff up, from the Patriot News:

A 17-year-old Halifax boy is accused of jamming a fork in another teen’s arm this month during a fight over a Mickey Mantle baseball card, state police said.

The boy, whose name was not released because he’s a juvenile, reacted “without thinking,” police said, after Devan Cohan told him to “shut up” and backhanded him in the arm Nov. 18 at a home in the 3900 block of Peters Mountain Road.

Cohan had minor injuries from the fork penetrating his skin, police said. The accused forker was charged with simple assault and harassment.

No word on which Mantle card it was, but I really hope wasn’t one of those endless Topps subset cards.

    They did not mention in this article that the kid that was trying to steal the baseball card was black. So it was reverse psychology I suppose.

    It’s all fun and games until someone loses a Mantle
