The Official First Relic Cards

When you think of the first relic cards, most likely your going to picture the Ken Griffey, Jr 1997 Upper Deck Game Jersey relic or any other jersey card made back in 1997.  In reality Press Pass was ahead of the game when they released their 1996 NASCAR product which contained the first relic cards ever inserted into packs.  I know there are a lot more baseball collectors than NASCAR, but I don’t think these race-used tire relics get the attention they deserve.  Upper Deck seems to have stolen the show from Press Pass in this situation.
