2002 Topps Tribute Milestone Materials relic

Year: 2002
Card Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: Tribute
Card Number: MIM-RY
Card Type: Insert Relic
Insert Set: Milestone Materials
Relic Type: Jersey
Card Attributes: Jersey Relic

Nothing to really get excited about, at least now.  Back in 2002 this was the bee's knees.  A nice shiny thick stock card with an actually game used relic.  Not an event used, game used for what that's worth.  Single color swatch and unnumbered the early 2000's marked a time with Robin's, and other players, jerseys were being cut up by the truck load for cards like this.  Still a nice card from the Cadillac of sets at the time.  I do like of the M shaped opening for the relic window.  Beats a plain square or circle.  Seems card makers are now just getting back to openings for their relic sets, you know besides Triple Threads.

  1. That is a sharp looking card. For whatever reason, the early Tribute sets are my favorite high end product. I think it's because it just looks classier than those that followed.
