A Toronto Blue Jays fan is getting her own baseball card … and all it took was a foul ball to the face.

Liz McGuire, who attended the Blue Jays’ 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday, posted on social media after the game that she had been hit by a Bo Bichette foul ball. McGuire, who stayed until the end of the game, experienced what appeared to be massive swelling on her forehead, followed by a black eye. McGuire’s post went viral, racking up over 150,000 likes and 10,000 retweets.

Though she didn’t get the foul ball, the trading card company Topps ended up making a custom baseball card of her that prominently features her injury.

Topps produced 110 copies of the card, referencing the apparent speed of Bichette’s foul ball when it injured McGuire.
