2001 Topps American Pie Wood Stock Game Used Bat card

Card Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: American Pie
Year: 2001
Card Number: BBWM-RY
Card Type: Insert Relic
Insert Set: Woodstock
Relic Type: Bat

I've been featuring a lot of older Yount cards and I thought it was time to feature one a bit more modern. And what's more modern than a relic card.

Topps American Pie was one of the first issues to work in Baseball and other Americana. It was a front runner to similar issues brought out by Donruss and Upper Deck. I don't remember how well this product did, but Topps didn't issue another American Pie set for almost a decade and that set was exclusively entertainment based.  

The card design is a homage to the late 60's early 70's with it's retro lettering and design. Back in the early 2000's with relic cards took off these were easy to find and not really all that expensive. It makes me laugh what sellers are trying to get for these now.  The checklist is pretty good too. Willie Mays, Duke Snider, George Brett, and Reggie Jackson to name a few.
