2012 Five Star Questions

2012 Five Star Questions
I've been excited about this product and am still gauging whether to purchase a box or two. I did buy a couple of singles, but had a couple questions I'm hoping to get input on:

1) On the Relic/Auto cards, the front says "Game-Used Memorabilia". However on the back it notes that "relic contained in this card is not from any season, game, or event"? So are relics from these cards game-used or manufactured?

For the supposedly top of the line product like this, Topps should have had relics with the specifically noted game that it was used in. I think doing so would revitalize the desire for patch/relic cards. To me having a patch from the jersey that Halladay threw a perfect game would be worth more than an auto.

2) Why doesn't the Baseball Five Star have autographed base cards like in their Football product? It's a shame that great rookies like Harper, Darvish and Cespedes don't have auto true RCs from this set.

It's game used; they just don't want to specify what game, when, or what team.

It is game used, but they don't have an exact game to tie it to. I'm not sure why the base cards aren't autoed.

It can be "game" used, or even "event" used. Often, players will wear/change jerseys several times during all star games/ceremonies, etc.
