    Should spring training jerseys be used on cards?

    I ask because someone pointed out that topps is using them on some of their Museum Collection game used cards (Saint Patrick's day green jerseys).

    I personally don't care except that it looks funny having a Kershaw quad with a green jersey.

    Sure. As long as the card turns out looking nice. With modern players design and rarity are way more important than where the swatch came from. Would be nice to know what we're getting in a straight forward manner however.

    Hey, at least you'd know it's player worn in game action, with all the crap that's out there, you don't even know anymore.

    I agree it should be used if it's a special jersey like st patricks day or a special patch used only in spring action. I think I might even find it acceptable if it's a swatch from the "racing stripe" of the jersey - whatever that thing is that spring jerseys have that regular season ones don't. Is that a special vent fabric used down the sides of the torso part of a jersey?

    Let them start using workout clothes, or or warm up shirts, or hell maybe pajamas as well...How stupid for Topps to even try this

    Aren't spring training games not even MLB? That seems like a stretch for validity depending on how they define game used

    Doesn't Topps already use ST jerseys? That's where the disclaimer on the back of the cards come from.

    I don't see the big deal but maybe use them in some insert set instead? Didn't Topps have some Spring Training Fever inserts or something at some point? Use the ST jerseys in something like that.

    They might as well just buy the patches and bolts of fabric directly from Rawlings or Majestic since they claim no particular provenance for any of the materials they use. It wouldn't change how people simultaneously complain about them and buy every one they can find.
