Default Topps Tribute / Clearing up Confusion on Stadium Seats

Subj: Topps Tribute / Clearing up Confusion on Stadium Seats


Topps has confirmed that the following 5 memorabilia cards in the recently released 2009 Tribute Baseball include pieces of stadium seat:



Babe Ruth Dual Relic Bat / Old Yankee Stadium Seat

Babe Ruth Triple Relic Old Yankee Stadium Seat / Uniform / Old Yankees Stadium Seat

Ty Cobb Dual Relic Bat / Tiger Stadium Seat

Jackie Robinson Triple Relic Ebbets Field Seat / Bat / Ebbets Field Seat

Mickey Mantle Triple Relic Old Yankee Stadium Seat / Uniform / Old Yankees Stadium Seat



Topps will replace any of the above cards with a pack of 2009 Topps Tribute Baseball or comparable product for collectors that are not satisfied with their card(s).

In addition, every card in 2009 Topps Sterling Baseball features game-used bat and game-used uniform except for one subject—Carl Erskine, which features Erskine’s autograph with stadium seat. Topps will replace this card with a pack of 2009 Topps Sterling Baseball for collectors not satisfied with their card.

Moving forward, to ensure no confusion, stadium seat pieces will not be used as memorabilia pieces unless it’s part of a special stadium seat specific insert.

Please send all items intended for replacement to the address listed below. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.

I think it would be hilarious if you took the free pack and got another card on the list.

Does this mean that the 'single' relic cards of Ty Cobb (see below) are traditional game-used bat relics, while the 'dual' relic cards are a combination of bat relics and seat relics?

Given their recent history, I'm hesitant to read too much into Topps' explanation.

Are they saying the dual relics are 1 bat & 1 seat or bat/relics with no guarantee of which one it is?

These look the same

TY COBB 2009 Topps Tribute Dual Bat Black Parallel /50 - eBay (item 130362217706 end time Jan-29-10 18:37:48 PST)

There is a difference here.

Ty Cobb Dual Bat Topps Tribute HOF Tigers /99 2009 - eBay (item 150409454842 end time Jan-31-10 11:27:23 PST)


It's really getting a little confusing.

I like the Tom Seaver auto/jersey relic card with the jersey being made of wood from a bat. Thanks, Topps!

Get ready to see products like Heritage to be loaded with seat relics so they can get rid of their inventory.
