2012 Topps Update Baseball
All-Star Stitches Relic
A few weeks ago I pulled this Chris Sale All-Star Stitches Relic. A fine card. There was a time when I'd kill to pull one of these cards when I wasn't pack searching. Now, I'm kinda like "eh." I must sound so ungrateful. Remember the days when relics were just being put into sports cards? Getting a relic was crazy! Now though, it seems the novelty has severely worn off and most relics are worth no more than $10 unless the relic belongs to a really famous player or the relic is of something other than your typical jersey swatch.
Pulling relics out of 2012 Topps Update Baseball is ridiculously easy. I mean, it is the easiest of easiest when it comes to pack searching. It's so easy it's almost disgusting. I feel embarrassed in a way for even buying these packs.
Still not going to stop buying these packs though. You never know when that pack which feels like your basic relic card is instead either an autographed relic card, or perhaps a bat relic of Mickey Mantle.
