Collection of six Donruss and Upper Deck cards featuring actual pieces of either a player's game-used bat or game-worn jersey or both. Donruss and Upper Deck created quite a stir when they began incorporating pieces of memorabilia into their card issues. Purists decried the practice of destroying historical artifacts for the sake of promotion. The majority of collectors, however, were delighted with the companies' innovative creation. This collection consists of cards featuring either bat pieces, jersey swatches, or both bat pieces and jersey swatches from individual New York Yankees legends. Cards are listed by year of issue. The card's limitation number (if provided) is listed in parentheses. 1) 2000 Upper Deck Yankees Legends Legendary Pinstripes #MM-LP Mickey Mantle Game-Used Jersey. 2) 2000 Upper Deck The Master Collection All-Time Yankees Team #ATY1 Babe Ruth Game-Used Bat (#059/500). 3) 2001 Donruss Classic Combos Dual Relic #CC-3 Babe Ruth Game-Used Bat and Game-Worn Jersey (#066/100). 4) 2001 Donruss Classic Combos Dual Relic #CC-4 Lou Gehrig Game-Used Bat and Game-Worn Jersey (#084/100). 5) 2001 Donruss Elite Throwback Threads #TT-5 Babe Ruth Game-Worn Jersey (#083/100). 6) 2001 Donruss Elite Throwback Threads #TT-6 Lou Gehrig Game-Worn Jersey (#027/100). The current market prices for Hall of Fame jerseys and game-used bats are well beyond the means of most collectors; however, with these cards fans are able to own, in some small way, a piece of history that was previously unobtainable. Total: 6 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate (open).
