Sooz over at A Cardboard Problem posted these pictures of a card included in this years Triple Threads that has raised some eyebrows
The first you probably noticed is the big badass bat knob. Pretty epic. When you take a second look you may notice the little relic pieces.
At first I thought. “That cool, you don’t see many vintage patches.” But then I looked even closer. That doesn’t look like a jersey from the ’30s. The jersey and the piping/patch in particular looks like a modern synthetic fabric.
It reminds me of the Honus Wagner relic card from Sterling last year. I wonder if we will hear from Topps on what these relic pieces are, I for one am very curious.
Sooz very astutely observed that with a sweet piece like that bat knob you don’t need a relic anyway.
