If topps is throwing away press sheets instead of either shredding or "chopping" on a cutter then they are asking for the guys who recycle their paper to pick thru it for $$$
The type of printing that you are talking about is web based. This is newspapers, and other high volume cheap quality printing. Baseball cards are printed on high quality sheet fed presses. I have worked for close to two decades in commercial sheet fed printing, for some of the largest companies in the printing business. None of them, except one, even had a compactor for there press sheets. It just is not cost effective to have someone in bindery slice the waste.

I am sure that Topps outsources their print work and each of those companies has there own set of procedures of what they do with the waste. Again, I have never worked for a sheet fed company that shreds or chops the waste press sheets, nor have I ever heard of a company doing so.

The person that has these sheets either works for the printing company that Topps out sourced work to or works for the recycling company that was hired to remove the waste.

Someone here posted that Topps has contacted this person and a lawsuit is in the works. Should be interesting to see what happens.
