Old School Hits: 2001 Topps Gold Label MLB Award Ceremony
In 2001, Topps Gold Label introduced its first-ever game-used relics with the MLB Award Ceremony set. Consisting of nearly 90 relics, the checklist is huge and features players such as Bonds, Ripken, Jeter, Griffey, Maddux, Clemens, Piazza, Nomo, McGwire, and Canseco.
Each card depicted a player who has won one of the following awards during their career:
World Series MVP
Rookie of the Year
League Leader in any of the three Triple Crown categories (one for each category)
Several players are found on more than one card in this set, based on the awards they’ve accomplished. Despite this, the checklist is very diverse and contains some of the only game-used cards you’ll ever see of Dante Bichette, Marty Cordova, John Wetteland, Scott Brosius, and Todd Hollandsworth.
MLB Award Ceremony relics are seeded 1 in every 24 packs.

Great set, these still sell strong despite how much the GU market has declined.
I have been meaning to pick up the Brosius card but it always ends outside my price range.
does edgar martinez have 2 batting crown cards?
As far as I can tell, Edgar has a card for his 1995 batting title and a card for his 2000 RBI title. BTW, I still do have that Edgar from Fleer Brilliants that you asked about.
