Default Proudly Show Off Your '11 Topps Tribute Collection

Here's the beginning of mine, not including the base cards. I decided to start focusing on this set. Never done a set nor did I think I ever would(team collector here). But I really like the Tribute stuff. Plus it's not astronomical in dollars to get this stuff piecemeal like it is with some of the other 'designer' cards.

At first I was going to sell the Koufax for cash to get more braves, but the more I started looking at the Tribute stuff I decided to just keep it and start the set. Plus, some of the material they use on the older HOFers looks sweet. Much nicer than the modern players, even in the same set. makes me think that there's at least a chance that the material is actually from the era in which they played.

I'm sure there are plenty of dicussions online about this, but i'm lazy. Anyone know how these relic cards work? Is that actually pieces of a bat used by Hank Aaron in a game, or is it just a card that has Hank Aaron on it, and game used bat pieces on it, but the pieces weren't neccesarliy used by Hank Aaron?

It says right on the back of the cards that the relics are not from any particluar game, event. or season. I guess that could be open to interpretation.

They are great looking cards either way, but i have noticed that some memorbilia cards will actually say "worn by", and others will just say that it's "authentic and was worn in a game". So it could be a Cal Ripken Jersey Card, but it just happens Cal is the picture on the card and the jersey was worn by Ryan Minor.

It's completely vanished from Ebay now(even completed auctions) but there was a monster Pujols book that the guy wanted like 80 grand for() and the card stated that the jersey was from the game in which pujols broke some huge record. Now that's pretty cool. Must have been a bunk seller to have the history just disappear like that. It was very recent too, it was still up at 20k just a couple days ago.

Are you 2 retarted or something?

Guys when topps/panini/UD puts out a product, as a customer and collector you just have to trust that they are doing the right thing and the bat/jersey/etc was actually used by the player on the card.

The statement on the back is just to claim that the relic isn't from a specific game or event, not saying that it wasnt used from the person on the card.

We opened several boxes of 2011 Tribute and we love the product. We pulled many a nice card including: Pujols triple relic auto, Ruth dual relic, Gehrig triple relic, Aaron dual relic, Cal Jr. relic auto.

You can see the scans at East Texas Sports Cards with our review of the product.

I wish I had mine scanned, very fun product to open before the price jump. I pulled out of two boxes, 2 Albert Pujols autos, Buster Posey auto, bunch of low numbered bat and jersey cards, Jason Heyward black parallel, beautiful Ryan Sandberg dual patch, and a couple dual autos. Most fun I've had in a long time.
