Topps Tribute EPIC RELIC FAIL!

After The Great Babe Ruth Stadium Seat Kerfuffle in last year's Topps Tribute, you'd think Topps would have learned their lesson. But noooooo....

Check this out, and tell me what you think this thing attached to this Mickey Mantle baseball card is.



It's a shame I won't be able to attend Topps' meet-and-greet at The National on Thursday, otherwise I'd ask them myself.

A swatch of a Wassily Kandinsky painting once owned by the Mick.

Come on... you must know that's from Time-Traveling Mickey Mantle. I mean, he DID save Christmas, after all!

Looks like a Taco Bell drink cup swatch.

Something from an Old Timers game maybe? Or one of his golf shirts.

Is it a tag from a jersey?

I posted about this the other day as well.

No idea what that thing is. An underwear tag perhaps?

That is obviously a cut from a 1of1 creation by KettleArt.

I haven't seen the original work, but here is one of his creations: http://padrographs.blogspot.com/2010/07/custom-bip-entry_03.html

He sent me a super-dope Tony Gwynn card a couple weeks back.
