Your Relics may have just gotten a little more interesting.
On Thursday, MLB revealed the new looks for all 30 teams in spring training this year and there are new touches to be found on jerseys and caps beyond the obvious new colors and logos.
For starters, all names and numbers now have a spring-themed sublimated texture as part of the material which will allow collectors to, in some cases, see when the material in their cards was used. The year, along with other spring designators, is part of the design.
A highway-themed spring training logo noting Arizona or Florida will adorn the sleeves, while MLB caps also will have the logo on one side and a much more subtle league logo worked into the texture on the other.
It will take time for spring jerseys to work their ways into memorabilia cards in products from Topps and Panini America, but they’re used relatively often. Perhaps this move will show us how often a bit more obviously.
