Prime or Patch?
Again, just trying to spark conversation, but do you think cards with stitching from letters, logos, numbered, logomen, etc. should be called Prime or Patch? Answer the poll and add any comments you think of. Smile

RE: Prime or Patch?
Honestly I wouldn't have a preference, except that some cards that say "prime" are just a one-color swatch, and other cards that say "patch" are the same way. I'd just like to see consistency throughout with the terminology. Swatch for your basic jersey piece, and use prime or patch for the multi-color stuff/stuff with designs on it.

I collect Michael Jordan, Mitch Richmond, and Ohio State players (football and basketball) in OSU gear. I strongly prefer 90's-era cards and use newer cards primarily for trade bait!

Prime should be multi, but patches can be singles color, and be 100% true

dance like no one is looking, but also, dance like everyone should be looking at you.
truthfully, one leads to the other

No, just one to also look for consistency. Smile Panini (well, formerly Donruss and the like) call them Prime, which Topps and Upper Deck call them Patches. And for the most part, when I see someone even list a Panini Prime card, it seems like they still refer to it as a patch. Just seeing what people's preference would be.

RE: Prime or Patch?
In my opinion any Letters, Number, Logo's (team or league) should be called a Patch .. Any seems or sticking should be called Prime

RE: Prime or Patch?
I said patch, but it's really hard to define between patch and prime. Upper deck was just purely lazy in calling something that is clearly just the one color a patch. At least when panini do it (in my experience at any rate), if it is one color there is stitching clearly visible. I have a kenyon martin 2010-11 Donruss production line GU prime that is one color but the stitching clearly puts the piece as being from the shorts waistband.



Collect Patrick Ewing, Jalen Rose, Kevin Garnett, LaMarcus Aldridge, Jeff Green

if you have less than 25 trades, I will ask you to send first.
