I pulled this yesterday out of a sealed box of 05 Donruss Champions. It is card #419 /125. It doesn't look like a jersey or pants. The material is somewhat coarse. Any ideas?

Looks like it could be from the inside of a baseball hat to me. Not 100% sure, though.

The back of the card reads: "The enclosed piece of material was cut from an Authentic Item personally word/used by Don Mattingly in an official Major League Baseball game."

It would be possible with that description.

I quickly looked on Beckett.com and it looks like Mattingly had GU batting gloves and GU Hat on that set. Interestingly enough, Mattingly had a third type of GU on the set: "GU Material" ???

Thanks for checking.

Probably the elastic from a jock strap. When I first pulled it, I was excited and was thinking of a worn laundry tag or something equally rare, but it's likely not the case.

Is card #419 listed as the "GU Material"?
