Many collectors have grown tired of relic cards. Judging from secondary market sales, mega patches are the only type of relic that seems to have appeal. The days of getting excited to see a plain white jersey card fall out of the pack are long gone.
Personally I still think they hold a place in the hobby. I no longer get excited when I pull one from a pack, but I still enjoy receiving them in trades and finding obscure releases of Pirates and Mountaineers.
2005 Throwback Threads Matt Lawton Bat Card
This is the kind of card that 99% of collectors would get royally pissed pulling out of a hobby box. For me this is the type I love the best. Lawton was a Pirate for half a season, so he barely has anything Bucco related. This card was a must get for me!
Do you guys still like relic cards?
