Wow, that is ugly. White borders hold better than black, but they look like something out of the early 90's. Maybe because that's all they will be worth. The legendary lineage insert cards looks nice, but how many non-autographed manufactured patches are these companies going to keep making??

I am going to contrary to most of the other posts and say that I like the 2009 Topps design. It is a refreshing change from the past 5 year plus many of the insert sets have a very appealing look.
Looks like the Jumbo boxes will have significantly more hits than this year's stinkers.

are you guys crazy ? how is it going to look any better in hand ? this is one of the biggest dissapointments ever. its terrible topps can do a whole lot better. im just hoping they dont go on to use the same design for football and basketball.
