Default New types of relics

Me and a lot of other people are getting bored of plain jerseys and bat relics. I do like patches but they are too hard to get. i was thinking topps should start making a variety of different relics. Like: GU hats, GU Batting gloves GU Balls and other stuff. What do you think about this and also what are some other relics you would like to see?

They have a lot of that in some sets. At least hats, gloves, and balls. Game used batting gloves are pretty sweet actually.

Take a look at the items in 2005 Donruss Champions. They basically have it all. Batting Gloves, Balls, Chest Protectors, Shoes, etc. I'm pretty sure there have been bases as well.

Have they done Hat Logos? That would be sweet. I would like to see leather catching gloves (not that manufactured stuff). Have some pieces with the webbing. Batting gloves would be nice. How about GU shoes? Have a card with a piece of the shoe on one side and part of a shoelace on the other. Also they should do game-used bases. I'd like to see that. Wouldn't it be hard to cut a ball into pieces? I also would like to see them bring back game-worn buttons.

Topps, if you want to do something creative, take our ideas. Boring old jersey relics aren't interesting to us anymore.

I wish they would stop making single colored jersey swatches. Even pinstripes should go. I'd love to see some fielding glove swatches though.
