Wow seriously? It seems like marquee came out not too long ago and they already have next years preview up. It's a little ridiculous in my opinion they push products out so quick now it seems

No one will order this, and it will end up super loaded like last years tribute.

Advertising 2012 Marquee already a year in advance yet they'll still insert redemption cards. you would think that a year is enough time to get all those "sticker autos" into their product.

I am probably gonna buy it just for that reason. Topps knows how badly this years Marquee sucked...so they r gonna make up for it. I remember specifically they did it in 2009 Triple threads. 2008 TT was AWFUL! but then everybody started getting ridiculous hits of 2009 TT (i personally got a Ty Cobb bat piece and a Tommy Hanson RC auto patch 1/1 out of one box i opened), that helped turn people back on to TT. Now its tough to find any 2009 TT, and its expensive as hell when you do find it. I think thats what might happen with Marquee. Better buy it as presell cuz the price may only go up from there. and if i am completely wrong and marquee BLOWS two years in a row...then topps might as well stop producing it.

If it starts out preselling low, I'll buy a couple of boxes with the sole hope it turns into tribute and goes up to $275 a box.

If everyone pre-orders it, then it WILL blow. They have to fill with cheap autos when that happens. And yes they might stop producing after next year bc there are too many products as it is!

if they're advertising now, it should get released sometime in the Spring.

THis crap amazes me. They were tweeting pictures of this stuff like a week after the 2011 release date. What amazes me about it is how absolutely horrible thier QC is on products. Maybe instead of freaking working on products a year or two in advance they should worry about make sure thier upcoming releases don't have any QC problems. They could also work to make sure there are the least amount of redemptions as possible in thier upcoming releases instead of working on 2015 bowman chrome. Gawd this crap pisses me off. /end rant

OMG...This will be $450 a box by release date. How about instead of working on the next version of a product that just released last month, lets make the releases coming out in the next weeks decent. Put your enengy there please.

Love the design again, just hopefully the hits will be decent for the $180-200 price line.

On another note hopefully that JETER JUMBO PATCH actually exists in 2012, because in this years it was on the sell sheet as well and never made it onto the checklist

For most, it was over-hyped, but terribly under-delivered, at least at the price point it was sold. I only opened a single pack, and got a Pujols Quad Relic...still not too impressed

I believe it is thoughts like this that keep Topps producing products that are worth more than their sell-sheets indicate. Topps just WANTS us to think that it has to do with under-ordering. Maybe to some extent. But I will hardly touch a product anymore without seeing breaks.

Something is wrong here, this set design looks like Museum Collection that my distributor just posted the sell sheet for:

http://allsportsmarketing.net/featur...aseball_R6.pdf

Cards have same design but one says Marquee and one says Museum Collection (obviously it is the same set as Marquee, maybe just a name change). Don't know if Beckett got it wrong or the distrib (my vote is Beckett). I would think they are going to release sometime closer to May/June than 2 weeks before Triple Threads again. Too many high-end product within too short of time frame.

I'm pretty sure after they said 2012 Marquee was coming out, they changed the name and everything to Museum Collection.
