  • 2001 Showcase/SP Authentic By The Numbers

    Two questions, if anyone can help me.

    On the 2001 Showcase Sweet Sigs lumber edition, are the pieces of bat game-used? I haven't seen definitive proof anywhere.

    On By the Letters, I think I am right in saying the letters are just manufactured patches, not game used?

    Seems pointless in both cases if they are not game-used materials.

    Thanks.

    Not sure, but...

    "On By the Letters, I think I am right in saying the letters are just manufactured patches, not game used?"

    I think they were initially, but no longer. You even get letters not in the player's name (For example, with Tim Lincecum, if you found all the letters, you'd get "TIM LINCECUM K"). However, the autographs are quite authentic. However, Topps' "Lettermen" autographs, which are the same concept, are in fact game-used.
