Card Annoyances: How Not To Make A Relic Card

Photobucket

What you see pictured above is the official way not to make a relic card.  Vintage Sports Cards is the company that released these a few years back, and they were mostly found in retail settings such as Walmart or Target.  All they did was place a worthless base card inside a frame that contained a relic.  I’d question the relic’s authenticity too.  Not sure why, that’s just the vibe I’m getting.  Most of them can be found for next to nothing, but the Mickey Mantle ones have been known to sell for up to $40.00.
