Deja-vu-vu-vu, Topps and another relic question…

Sooz over at A Cardboard Problem posted these pictures of a card included in this years Triple Threads that has raised some eyebrows

The card in question is this guy.

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.

What’s up?

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.

  1. This is why I bitch about Topps and their shady practices so much!

    When they put a relic on the card and advertise it as game-used, it better da*m well be Gehrig’s jersey. How does Topps ‘f this up? It’s probably one of the most important cards they put together and they “accidentily” put in a modern jersey piece…yeah right.

    Just more shady business practices that a company that has a monopoly does because…well…why would they care?
