Description

After a five year hiatus, Topps re-introduced their high-end Topps Tribute brand in December, 2009. Each $50/five-card pack yielded three base cards, in serial-numbered parallel card, and either a relic card or an autographed (sticker) relic card.

A typical six-pack wax box should yield three autographed relics, 3 relics and 6 parallels numbered to 219 or less.

Use of Stadium Seats as Relics

On January 24, 2010 -- almost a full month after the product's release -- Topps confirmed what many collector's had suspected. Topps admitted that five prominent Topps Tribute memorabilia cards included pieces of stadium seats in lieu of a game-used bat.<ref>http://www.cardboardconnection.com/news/topps-confirms-use-of-stadium-seats-in-select-2009-topps-tribute-relic-cards</ref> (Nowhere on any Topps Tribute card does it mention exactly what the relics are from, nor was the use of stadium seats mentioned by Topps on the sell-sheets.) The five cards in question are:

Babe Ruth Dual Relic Bat / Old Yankee Stadium Seat

Babe Ruth Triple Relic Old Yankee Stadium Seat / Uniform / Old Yankees Stadium Seat

Ty Cobb Dual Relic Bat / Tiger Stadium Seat

Jackie Robinson Triple Relic Ebbets Field Seat / Bat / Ebbets Field Seat

Mickey Mantle Triple Relic Old Yankee Stadium Seat / Uniform / Old Yankees Stadium Seat

Topps offered to exchange any of the five cards for either an unopened pack of '09 Tribute or comparable product.

In addition, Topps pledged to no longer use stadium seat pieces as memorabilia pieces unless it’s part of a special stadium seat specific insert.
