Celebration Relic Cards

Collectors have seen so many different relics cut-up and placed into cards.  Over the years its been getting more and more difficult to try and find something that’s truly unique.  We’ve seen jerseys, pants, bats, patches, helmets, etc…  One small thing that I’d like to see would be relics used during specific team celebrations.

As soon as the Phillies won their 5th straight division championship the other night, all the players put on the T-shirts and hats stating they were division champs.  I think it would interesting to pull a card that contains a piece of shirt worn by one of the players during a celebration like this.  It would be even better if the shirt was still drenched in champagne.  I know a lot of collectors probably think this is just another gimmick, but throw it into Allen & Ginter and nobody will know the difference.

On another note, I still don’t know why no company has ever made USFL relic cards.  I’m sure there would be some collectors that would love to pull a Steve Young LA Express jersey card.
