2005 Topps Update AS Stitch AP

For the first time, jersey relics from the annual Mid-Summer Classic were included in the Topps Update set in the same calendar year. 2004 Topps was the first set to include All-Star jersey cards, but they were from the 2003 game. 2005 Topps also included an All-Star Stitches set but the players were from the 2004 game. This would become an annual tradition in Topps Update sets for years to come.
