Card of the Day: Doug Flutie 1985 Topps USFL #80

Wouldn’t it be cool if they made relic cards containing pieces of USFL jerseys?  Even better they could get a few buyback autographs from the USFL sets.

USFL Relics?

The United States Football League (USFL) only played three seasons, 1983-1985, but during that time it produced a few of the best players to ever step onto the gridiron: Steve Young, Jim Kelly, Reggie White, and Herschel Walker.  What surprises me is that in an age of collecting where its possible to pull an authentic DNA relic of George Washington, there are no relic cards containing elements of the USFL.  I would think for those die-hard Young, Kelly, White, and Walker fans those cards would be a big hit.  There has to be some game-used relics from that long lost organization.
