It's Do-able

I have been kicking around the idea of collecting a game used set. I think I have found it.

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to pull this Ty Cobb Game Used bat card from one of Joe C's group breaks. It's a 2009 Topps 206 Piedmont Framed relic. According to BaseballCardPedia (a site I trust) these framed relics came in three varieties, Piedmont, Old Mill, and Polar Bear. The checklist is a very do-able 25 cards. With names like Ichiro, Pujols, Hanley, Babe, etc., it should be a fun one to pursue.

If anyone has any of these for trade, let me know. Thanks.

The checklist; (Reds are the ones I have)
FR-1 Alex Rodriguez
FR-2 Ryan Howard
FR-3 David Wright
FR-4 Albert Pujols
FR-5 Evan Longoria
FR-6 Chipper Jones
FR-7 Carlos Beltran
FR-8 Ichiro
FR-9 Hanley Ramirez
FR-10 Carl Crawford
FR-11 David Ortiz
FR-12 Nick Markakis
FR-13 Michael Young
FR-14 Hideki Matsui
FR-15 Ryan Braun
FR-16 Robinson Cano
FR-17 Miguel Tejada
FR-18 Phil Hughes
FR-19 Cole Hamels
FR-20 James Loney
FR-21 Brian McCann
FR-22 Ty Cobb
FR-23 Jimmie Foxx
FR-24 Jackie Robinson
FR-25 Babe Ruth

Also, does anyone know what the insertion ratios are for the 3 varieties?


  1. wow. that's going to look awesome when you're done.

  2. As a fanatic of all things game-used, I LOVE this set! It'll look great when it's done! I don't know about the insertion rates, though. Judging by availabilities online, I'd say it's Piedmont, Old Mill, and Polar Bear in order of least to most 'rare'.
