Okay so I always here about commemorative from UD. Now at first I thought they were real worn patches but when I saw how common Ted Williams and Babe Ruth Patches were I though No Way were they real. Are they just manufactured patches for the players but not worn by them???

They are manufactured.

The ones you are seeing right now are from 09 Topps, only inserted into retail blaster boxes.

No problem. There has been an overflow of manufactured patches over the last couple of years. UD usually has them in their high-end product UD Premier (makes no sense for a high-end product either). Also many of the "lettermen" you see (autographed or unautographed) are manufactured, although a rare and select few are real.

Alot of people want them. They go for 10-20$ on ebay. So you really get a blaster for free if you sell the patch.

yea thats pretty cool. It would be cool if like someone kept buying blasters and getting patches until they got a printing play.

The retail and the hobby patches are different. The hobby patches are nickname Patches....for example...Honus Wagner "The Flying Dutchman". The Wagner patches spell out Dutchman with each letter being #ed to 50. These nickname patches came 1/ Jumbo box or 1: 343 Hobby packs(non-jumbo).

The retail patches are All-Star Game commemorative patches and come 1/blaster. I like the Nickname patches but the All-Stars seem to be selling better on ebay.

Here is what the April of 09 issue of Beckett says

09 Topps Legends Commemorative Patches (Stated Odds 1:343 Hobby)
09 Topps Legends of the Game Nickname Letter Patches (random inserts in packs #'d/50)

they are two different sets.......

cause people have been asking me if they are the same set or not......
