It seems to be a big issue with Topps T206 and the Topps Tribute. On the back or front they are stating Game Used Memorabilia or Relic but in fact it might not even be a Game used item from that player. Looks like so far Babe Ruth has been the one everyone has noticed, but Ty Cobb and Jackie Robinson (to name a few) could also be in the mix. Also whos to say that even the current players we aren't getting what they say.<br />
Could you please contact Topps and find out a checklist, what the pieces are, and why Topps isn't giving us any info on them?<br />
Below is the recent e-mail I recieved from them....I think most of us thought it was only the Wood pieces causing the issue, but from the e-mail even the Jersey's are in question.<br />
Thank you for your inquiry, please be advised these are memorbilia pieces and may not necessarily be bat or jersey relics, however the majority of the items are indeed jersey and bat pieces. Some of the items including the Ruth relics are seat relics from that era. <br />
Thank you for your interest in Topps.<br />
