2002 Topps American Pie Suit Handkerchief Relic
Growing up I would watch a lot of old movies with my Mom. For the longest time I didn't think she had ever seen a movie that was made past 1965. I remember watching cheesy movies like Bedtime for Bonzo starring Ronald Reagan and classics like the Maltese Falcon starring Humphrey Bogart.
I think those early experiences led me to this card.
The Topps American Pie set was quite the unique set. You could get a piece of the Berlin Wall, a swatch of George Burns coat or this awesome suit handkerchief of Bogey. I remember seeing a friend pull this card not long after this set came out and I knew I had to have it. Hard to believe that was almost 15 years back.
The actor relics don't pop up a ton on eBay as I think a lot of people tried to complete the set. Overall prices are not super expensive as this Bogart was odd wise the hardest to pull. This card sold recently for around $30. A couple other relic subsets featured the likes of Elvis and Marilyn Monroe and usually sell in the $75 to $100 range.
I don't have a ton of non sports memorabilia, but this is one I'm really happy to own.
Thanks for reading.
