There have been some very pretty cards (like this one) to be pulled out 2011 Triple Threads this year. There have also been some duds.
Then, there is this card (which I found on this auction courtesy of @JuddFamilyStone on Twitter).
First glance, I was floored. The design is great. The bat knob is fantastic (the bat is about 70 years old). And the jersey ... Wait.
What the hell is that?
Here's a closer look at the jersey from a picture in the auction.
According to the back of the card, "The relics from this card are not from any particular game, event or season."
Here's a card that didn't need this jersey on it. The bat knob is such a good piece that it could have stood on its own without anything added to it.
So, what is this jersey then? Any guesses?
