In an earlier post I said there were hardly any baseball cards I'd spend more than $10 for. Here's another.
2005 Topps Touch Em All Base Relics
I paid $20 for this at a card show in Houston in 2013. It's got a lot going for it. It's a Phillies card, it's Jim Thome, one of my favorite players, even before he was a Phillies, it's a base relic card, it's from the 2004 All-Star Game which was held in Houston, it's limited (one of 50), Jim Thome was in the game, and even better, I was at the game. BTW, Thome wasn't a starter but got two at bats, unfortunately, going o for 2.
I guy I knew had season tickets for the Astros and had gotten 2 All-Star Game tickets and invited me along.
