George Sisler 2015 Panini National Treasures bat (#35/99)
My George Sisler collection isn't terribly large--mostly modern sets that feature some of the game's legends--plus he's a guy from a much earlier era, so his better stuff justifiably goes for a premium. That would explain my lack of a real hit, an autograph or non-manufactured relic, up to this point. As a matter of fact, I have three manurelics of the St. Louis/Boston legend, but that was never gonna be good enough for me.
Enter two positive aspects of the hobby: Panini and COMC. The former produces some fun cards, and sans MLB license said cards tend to be more affordable if you can get over the lack of logos. The latter was my (even more) affordable source for this game-used (remember those?!) bat relic out of Panini's classy National Treasures product. I'm not kidding when I say the price was right--I paid ridiculous $4.85 for this guy. I consider that more than fair even as someone who's become skeptical of and less interested in relic cards.
