Edit: Here are there direct words from the national when asked about value...

I can't get to the twitter links from work, but I was at the meet and greet. Forget about what they said for a second. Did anyone comment on how very few of the people representing Topps had been there longer than 1 year? I think they had 6-8 people there, only 4 longer than 1 year. Some were like months.

Also, a nice comment when the guy from marketing said "Bowman is a sleepy product..." What?!?!?!

Topps is out of touch with the collector. I realize they need to turn a profit, but this is ridiculous. Sucks that Topps is king...Panini seems like they have their ish together when it comes to customer relations.
