American Pieces Relics

*early morning posts are the best. That's when the most coffee can be consumed. It's time for some #CardsOverCoffee!*

Over the past year, I have been picking up cards from 2011 Topps American Pie. 

It started with just collecting the base set, then I started to uncovering other parts of the set and the chase expanded from a few of the autographs, some of the relics and especially the American Pieces Relics.

*takes a sip before continuing on. I am a tad surprised as many times as I have edited the beginning of this post that I am not on Cup #2*

The American Pieces Relics is a four card set that features pieces of American history.

So far I have half of the set, but landed the one I sought out most first.
The Statue Of Liberty relic I have wanted since I saw it on Twitter. Being a NY sports fan and a Ghostbusters fan, this relic was much needed.

Grassy Knoll is from the JFK Assassination

*takes another sip, okay, honestly I am on Cup #2 now*

With two pieces down, only the Lewis & Clark Trail and the Gettysburg Cannon remain. I am hopeful I can complete this set at some point. If any of you have the final two pieces and they are for trade, contact me!

Funny thing about these relics is that they are apart of History, a subject I couldn't stand in school but have become more and more fascinated by the last few years. Maybe it's because I am more eager to learn as an adult or maybe the things we were once taught, have started becoming history themselves as the world evolves and adapts.

No matter the reason, I am enjoying the cards and the history lesson.

  1. Cool relics. I'm in the same boat as you. I didn't like history in school, but these days... I love it. A few years ago I had the opportunity to teach middle school history to ELL students. It was so much fun.

    1. I hope they enjoyed hearing it as much as you enjoyed teaching it

  2. I wonder how many tourists have scooped up dirt and grass from the grassy knoll and took it home with them over the years?

    1. I saw one person tore apart one of these relics and sold it pebble by pebble in a framed art piece they made of grassy knoll
