Autographs & Game-Used

Both All-Star Stitches Relic sets are Chrome parallels of the respective cards released in 2014 Topps Chrome. While these cards are printed on chromium stock, scanned images of the Chrome cards do not make this obvious. Leading to more potential confusion is the fact that Topps did not use the familiar "Topps Chrome" oval logo on the front of the card.
