The "Patch" That Ain't?

I need some help.

I just pulled this "Game-Worn Patch" card of the Yankees' Robinson Cano from a box of Topps Unique. (Video break to come) But I have no idea what this is, nor where Topps got this "patch" from.



Obviously, it is not from a Yankees jersey; nor is it from a Dominican Republic WBC jersey.

(It's not a "patch" either, just threads; but that's neither here nor there.)

So what's it from?

Any hints?

2006 All-Star workout jersey.

Yep, I was going to say the same. Those were the 3 colors used for the workout clothes that year.

That's a great looking patch though.
Will you embrace it or treat it like a redheaded stepchild?

Yep, 2006 all star workout patch. I could actually really use that card for my Cano collection, any chance you'd be willing to trade it? My email is yanks1996wsc@gmail.com. LMK, thanks, drew

Fuck that. Do your homework, guys. That's obviously a patch from Cano's 1990 West Germany World Cup jersey. He was a starting midfielder, you know.

Drew, Chris only trades with you if he can rip you off.
