2001 Fleer EX Wall of Fame - Wall Relic Card

Card Manufacturer: Fleer
Card Set: EX
Year:  2001
Card Number:NNO
Card Type: Insert Relic
Insert Set: Wall of Fame
Relic Type: Outfield Wall

I think there are far too few relics of odd ball stuff like this. The market is clogged with relics featuring pieces of clothing and bats, but rarely do they feature piece of walls.  I think we need more wall relics, and seat relics and just oddball relics in general.  It's interesting that Fleer states it's a genuine piece of a Major League stadium, but they don't say which one. Or course we're led to believe this is a County Stadium relic, but who can really say. There's also the game date on the back of the card, the day Robin got his 3,000th hit, does that mean this is a piece of County Stadium wall taken back in 1992?  Sigh. Who knows, but still a well designed card and a cool oddball relic. And you know I'm a sucker for oddballs.  Another odd thing about the card it's not numbered or labeled for reference. No WF-3 or WF-RY. Fleer did this on a bunch of it's relics like this for a while.
