Something about being able to determine what game a particular relic is used in always makes me believe the authenticity more.
Years ago Donruss used to picture the relic they cut up on the back, but today we are often stuck with the phrase "This relic is not from any particular game, season, or event"
Panini had a subset in their National Treasures release where they tell you exactly when the material is from. It was called Dated Material.
This is my Cutch card numbered 10/25
How did Cutch do for the day?
Looks like he did pretty well.
