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 Baseball.

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:

Dale Murphy
Jim Rice
Nolan Ryan
Rod Carew
Tony Gwynn
Wade Boggs
Andre Dawson
Brooks Robinson
Reggie Jackson
Gary Carter

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.
