Confusing Dual Relics

One of the first cards to contain more than one player on the front comes from 1953 Bowman Color card number 93 – Billy Martin & Phil Rizzuto.  Ever since then, companies have been teaming up popular players on the same piece of cardboard.  It only seems natural that when relics were introduced during the mid to late 90’s, manufacturers would start placing multiple relics of different players on the same card too.  I think its great if a card has two players on it along with a relic for each person.  Where I think it gets confusing sometimes is when a card has two players on it but only one relic.  Certain sets make it look like the relic is from one player, but really its from another.  The only way to know for sure is to read the back of the card or look at the card number.  It doesn’t take much for a scammer to take dual card of Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx and tell people the bat is of Ruth when in fact its of Foxx.  There is a big difference in the price of a Ruth bat versus a Foxx one.  This is why I don’t like to see single bat pieces on a card with two players.  It can get confusing.

Without turning this card over, how would you know who used this bat piece?

Back From Vacation – Myrtle Beach Pelicans Photos

Last night I got home after an 11 hour drive back from Myrtle Beach, SC.  While I was there, I took a drive over to see BB&T Coastal Field where the Myrtle Beach Pelicans play.  They are the advanced single A team of the Atlanta Braves.  The only open area at the stadium was the gift shop, you couldn’t go inside to see the actual field.  Even though the gift shop was open, we had to go find someone to unlock it, since they don’t get many visitors during the winter.  I was able to pick up three pins, and a 2008 team set for my collection.  Later today I will break open the team set, and a blaster box of 2008 Upper Deck Timeline for you.  Here are a few photos I was able to take outside the stadium.  Greg Norman’s Australian Grille isn’t near the stadium, that was taken a few miles away.

Triple Jersey or Single

I was thinking about this today.  You see a lot of triple jersey cards of one player.  How do you know that there is three separate pieces of jersey in the card?  Maybe its one piece of jersey hidden behind three windows?
