While many of the cards share the appearance of many one pack/box products, the Prime Patches cards actually came with 4 packs per box and each pack with three cards. Two of the cards were autographs or relics. Boxes are still floating around, but are often very pricey. I would suggest collecting the singles of the players or teams that you
2005 Prime Patches Juan Gonzalez Bat/Jersey/Pants Autograph
While the set did have autographs, they were all sticker autographs and there seemed to be plenty of missable players included in the run of autographs. However, some of the autographs are still cool to own. Imagine if this Juan Gone autograph were actually on the card. That would be an incredible card, but even on a sticker it has a nice place in my collection and is one of my favorite pieces I own from the set.
2005 Prime Patches J.D. Drew Jumbo Jersey
While there are simple pieces of jersey and bat in the set one of the best parts about collecting these cards is the availability of jumbo jersey pieces. After nearly fifteen years of relic cards, there are plenty of half inch by half inch squares out there on the market. I love sets that offer collectors a chance to own something unique. If it's going to be plain, than at least give a larger piece of jersey.
2005 Prime Patches Jim Thome Patch
Of course, there are also plenty of truly unique pieces in the 2005 Prime Patches set too. Anything from buttons to patches can be seen on the relics cards and in many cases the set includes a little bit of everything for collectors to chase. While the big pieces are nice, there are also some really nice smaller, and very unique, patch cards in this set. One of my favorites is a Mark Prior I picked up this summer.
2005 Prime Patches Mark Prior Bat/Shoe/Hat/Fielding Glove
While the pieces are quite small I love the hat patch with the New Era logo. Really cool card, and while it's a Cubs player I despise, probably won't trade this one. There are plenty of other cards like this one available on Ebay or COMC, but they often come with a pretty hefty price.
