With kids being constantly bombarded by all sorts of digital stimuli in this day and age, it is refreshing that they even know what baseball cards ARE and still trade with friends.

In this case, however, things went just a wee bit too far.

The story goes that a central Pennsylvania teen is facing juvie time after he stabbed his friend with a fork over a Mickey Mantle baseball card. The silverware-wielding ruffian stated that he reacted “without thinking.” If he were thinking, he might have chosen a spork, or something that would have done a little less damage.

Sometimes it is the simple things in life that make all the difference when you are growing up: Sloppy Joe day in the school cafeteria, an impromptu snowball fight during a winter storm and, of course, assaulting your buddy over a baseball card.

The victim sustained minor injuries but should be fine. He’ll be back in Mint Condition in no time.
