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.
Agreed. Here is the 2003 Tribute Hanley. I loved the product back then. I have to say I do not really like it much now but I do have some in my pc because the autos are fairly cheap to pick up.
