This is an article from SI from 1985 (check the dateline on the article). It was their amazing April Fool’s Joke. A real classic. Dunno if you were just trying to get more people in on the joke or also bought into it!

Topps got in on the April Fool’s Day fake player biz this year too. They created a baseball card with some 5-11 195lb HS kid from Japan that throws 104 mph fastballs and just got drafted and inserted it into packs of baseball cards.
