New York City has one of the most storied local baseball histories. From the Yankees and the Mets to the Dodgers and Giants, many of the sport's all-time greats have ties to the metropolis. 2014 Famous Fabrics Big Apple Baseball tackles that history through cut signatures, memorabilia cards and sketch cards. Produced in limited quantities, it's the first Famous Fabrics set since the company was acquired by Leaf.
The centerpiece of each box is a one-of-one Cut Signature Autograph card. Available signatures include Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig and Casey Stengel. And while there are no two cards that are exactly alike, some players have as many as five different autograph cards, each as a part of a different subset. And while there are plenty of big names, with a print run of 2,000 boxes, not all of them are going to come with a Hall of Fame-caliber player. All Cut Signatures come encapsulated.
2014 Famous Fabrics Big Apple Baseball boxes come with a second card, either a sketch card or a memorabilia card. Sketch cards use original drawings to present New York baseball legends. Each player has just one sketch card made of them. Memorabilia cards have at least one swatch of game-used memorabilia.
Because this isn't a licensed product, cut signature cards and memorabilia cards do not have player photos or team logos.
All boxes of 2014 Famous Fabrics Big Apple Baseball comes numbered to 2,000. This breaks down to 200 ten-box cases.
