Top Topps: Lee & Zevon Relic

I got this in an email from Reader Kris.

"I wanted to send you another dream card of my design- a double autographed relic card featuring Bill "Spaceman" Lee and the late songwriter/rocker Warren Zevon.

The “relic” portion of this dream card doesn’t feature a ticket stub or a fragment of a baseball jersey. Instead, it contains a portion of the label from a bottle of Oban single malt scotch whisky to commemorate the day in the early 1980s when Lee stopped by Zevon’s for a visit. Warren was currently on the wagon, attempting to dry out in an effort to extend his marriage, his career and possibly even his life, but when Lee arrived he decided to have just “one drink” to welcome his friend. Legend has it that the two partied like madmen for THREE straight days."
