Relic Cards You Wished They Made

Currently there are 45,510 jersey, and 2,724 bat cards up for sale on eBay.  You would think that with those kind of numbers you wouldn’t have trouble finding a relic card of a player, but thats not true.  There are a lot of players, including many Hall of Famers, that still don’t have relic cards made of them.  Many of them don’t have relics made because you can’t find items they used, or the ones that people have found are either in a HOF or their family doesn’t wish to sell them.  Below is a list of people I would like to see relic cards of:  

  • Alexander Cartwright
  • Abner Doubleday
  • Cap Anson
  • Connie Mack
  • Walter Johnson
  • Bronko Nagurski
  • Sherry Magee
  • Billy Lothridge
  • James Del Gaizo
  • Jake Scott
  • Earl Morrall
  • Larry Seiple
  • Jim Kiick
  • Mercury Morris
  • Tim Foley
  • Lloyd Mumphord
  • Ed Jenkins
  • Terry Cole
  • Hubert Ginn
  • Charles Leigh
  • Dick Anderson
  • Mike Howell
  • Curtis Johnson
  • Henry Stuckey
  • Charles Babb
  • Larry Ball
  • Bob Matheson
  • Howard Kindig
  • Jesse Powell
  • Mike Kolen
  • Alfred Jenkins
  • Doug Swift
  • Jim Langer
  • Maulty Moore
  • Bob Kuechenberg
  • Bob Heinz
  • Norm Evans
  • Manny Fernandez
  • Doug Crusan
  • Jim Dunaway
  • Wayne Moore
  • Marv Fleming
  • Howard Twilley
  • Otto Stowe
  • Vern Den Herder
  • Bill Stanfill
  • Nick Buoniconti
  • Marlin Briscoe
  • Jim Mandich
  • Don Shula – Miami Dolphins used jacket, not a Colts jersey.
  • Ben Hogan
  • Lord Stanley

As you can see, many of the people on my list come from the Miami Dolphins ’72-’73 Perfect Season team.  A lot of people on the list have autographed cards, but no relics.  Who would you like a relic card made of?

  1. Richie’s Ashburn game smoked pipe.

  2. I’d like the relic cards to die out. I don’t mind the modern stuff… the ones that are made from one of several dozen jerseys that a player may use in a season.

    But I hate seeing the old-timers’ relic cards. Those pieces belong in the Hall of Fame, or with the family members, or even with some private collector who actually appreciates them. They should not be chopped up into scraps to satisfy the “mojo” kids.

  3. With more and more hair-strand cards being made, I’d like to see a “Piece of the Mullet” card of John Kruk.
