Tribute has been around since the early 2000's, and was a retired player only product till MLB or MLBPA changed the rules for checklist content a few years back. I think there might have been one original Tribute release that featured modern players. There was a nice on-card Hanley RC auto in the set.
It was discontinued for a few years, and brought back as a sticker autograph filled abomination! Early on-card Tribute cards were a true thing of beauty, and looked a lot better than the tripe Topps puts out now.
