A buddy from work's father pulled this (and actually has it on eBay if anyone is interested) and we were discussing where the patch might have come from but came up blank. We thought it might be from the inside of a collar or something to ID the jersey for a clubbie, or maybe Topps marked it so they knew it was Rizzos before they put it in?
Anyway, the card is a 1/1 so I'd think it should have a more "Prime" patch, but since it's a sketch card maybe not? It's also signed on the back by both the artists, so it seems more high end, except for the patch with a seemingly handwritten, possible stitched, 44.
