Ricky Vaughn just went high-end.

Topps teased on Tuesday that it has acquired a Major League 2-style jersey worn by Charlie Sheen and that it intends to cut up the jersey to release memorabilia cards in at least three forthcoming baseball products.

According to a post on the company’s Instagram page, the Relic cards will appear in 2014 Topps Triple Threads, Five Star and Topps Dynasty — a new high-end product.

This year is the 25th anniversary of Major League and Topps is readying a series of autographed cards for 2014 Topps Archives, which arrives next month. Sheen was revealed as the first signer for that product last week.

    I wish they would do at least some one color jersey cards for this in archives (or another low to mid range issue). Many collectors just can’t fork over the kind of cash required to dive into a high end release.

    “Worn” by Sheen? What, like the draft day people do? Put it on, take it off, where’s my check?
    Just call it a manufactured patch and be done with it. My faith in game used is really low right now
    given that the COA say nothing of substance. A guarantee of nothing when all is said and done.

    Looking forward to seeing who else they get. I’d love to see Wesley Snipes and Bob Uecker added to
    the list. Maybe some cut autos for the guys that are now gone. *shrug*

    Richard: Based on certain touches on that jersey, I believe it to be from the filming of Major League 2. (I own a different player’s jersey and it has some peculiar features that were not the norm for Indians jerseys at the time — or now.) The laundry tag on the bottom front would be a way for me to confirm that, but it was not shown. All Topps said was worn in its informal post — doesn’t mean it’s not from filming.

    Major League 2 ‘style’ jersey. He wore it as he signed the cards and Topps took some pics. The 1989 style card is real cool but I will pass on the player ‘worn’ jersey card.
