Some Early Ginter Returns

There are six cards in the Tigers team set. Guess how many relics there are? Yeah*














*Ok, so maybe there are only 5. You see, there are two Austin Jackson cards--one with a jersey and one with a bat--but they are actually the same card. Same card number, same picture, same everything except for the little swatch. To me this is only one card, with your choice of how you want your one square inch of memorabilia, but I could see how some people would want both.

  1. Same problem with the Cubs...11 base cards and 10 relics. This is getting nuts!

  2. Am I wrong to be thinking once the initial hype wears off, these relics will mostly be a buck or two?

  3. When did the Tigers were a striped jersey? See Boesch.

  4. @ShaneK There is piping that runs around the neckline and down the front of the jersey. Runs down the side of the pants as well. That's what this stripe is from.

  5. You are correct about the piping but it is not blended in the fabric as seen on the Boesch jersey, it's more of a raised piping.

  6. Hmm...excellent point--the piping is raised up on the regular jersey. Could it be pinstripes from the Detroit Stars Negro League throwbacks, perhaps?

  7. That is very possible...too bad Topps couldn't signify this.
