Relic Card Innovation to be Unveiled in Fan Favorites
Topps announces that it will launch an all-new Relic Card innovation in 2005 Fan Favorites
Topps will be featuring pieces of game-used items not on all-new card designs and technologies,
but on original Topps vintage cards.
How will Topps do this?
Topps is going out onto the secondary market and buying back vintage Topps cards of several Hall
of Famers and retired superstars. They will take two identical cards and insert a piece of
game-used uniform or bat between the two cards to create a brand new card. Each card will include
laser-etched printing, which will describe what type of game-used item is embedded into the card.
The subjects include:
The Topps Originals Relics program will be randomly inserted as a box topper in 2005 Topps Fan
Favorites Baseball, which releases the week of June 6th.
