As most of you know I'm a sucker for these obscure sets. Many were ahead of their time and are starting to see a nice rebound on the secondary market. Others like Fusion have long disappeared without anyone caring.
With that being said even the worst of sets are not without their bright spots.
2001 Topps Fusion Willie Stargell Bat Relic
Seems odd that a card from 2001 is 16 years old. The design gives this card a cool 70's retro vibe. With all the lines I feel like if you stare enough you will see a hidden Pirate ship or something. Kind of trippy.
This card was made when relics were still a new and exciting. The relics were actually more difficult to pull than the autographs. How times have changed. Unless the relic is a super premium patch many collectors have no use for them. Thankfully that leaves deals for people like me. If I recall this card set me back around $7 which is a nice deal for a 2001 Pops.
Thanks for reading!
