Improving A Relic Piece

A little while ago I was commenting on how this Miguel Tejada jersey card was confusing because he was pictured as both an Oriole and an A on the card and the card doesn't give you a clue as to which jersey it's from.

Now take a look at this jersey relic also made by Donruss of Rafael Palmeiro Orioles and Rangers uniforms.

2004 Donruss Throwback Threads #PT-51 200/250

It's got nice, clear explanation of what the items are and what team their from...granted it does help that they are different colors.

Now let's move on to another Palmeiro relic...this time a bat relic.

2004 Upper Deck Etchings #BE-RP

I really like the idea of "improving" bat pieces by burning a logo into them! Now how can we "improve" those bland white jersey piece that populate way too many jersey cards?
