Clean looking stuff. I like it. I see the same old huge 1 color patch, small 1 color and countless others. Card designs look good though. Hope the price stays low but I doubt it. Looks like $125 or better boxes.

What you aren't seeing are the Trevor Cahill, Angel Pagan, and Hunter Pence Jumbo Relics that are a huge swath of white jersey lol

More of the same old crap IMO. Of course they are going to show the big cards and only promote the A list signers, why would they tell you they just signed Pagan and Tyson Ross to 100 year contract extensions to ensure sh!tty sticker autos continue to water down their products for years to come. Don't let Topps fool you again. Bring back UD, all Topps can do right is prospect products ( most of the time), and they are even starting to lose that race to Elite.

Looks like Topps Tier Two to me. I wonder what park bench gave its life to masquerade as the Mantle Quad Bat card?

Looks like most Topps high end products, but that Hank Aaron 3 card lot picture looks terrible imo.

This look slike it will be Marquee (as it was supposed to be) but now the Museum Collection cards will have 3 different parallels. /15 /10 and /5.

Either:

A) The product will be disgustingly overproduced, which means /1000+ autos of crappy players

or

B) The Museum Collection Card checklist overall will be improved, meaning that there will be less garbage names on the list, but more variation of the same player, and still a total of 1200 cases produced.


I just hate seeing Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax, and soon to be Willie Mays have 300 different products that feature their auto, making their autos less valuable due to the commonality across all of their products.

Don't forget about Pacquiao. Now that hes done with his recent fight he has tons of time to sign. Topps won't let that contract expire until his auto is diluted as well. It should have been one and done with Ginter IMO.

I believe the bushism describes this perfectly.



All card companies show the best cards and hide the crap that fills it and makes them $... not sure why you are all so surprised that topps is doing this UD does it too, its a marketing strategy.

While I do like the quote from Bush............classic, how hard is it to read a checklist? Know what you are buying before you spend your money.

I agree completely. And common sense would lead MOST to believe that not every box can have a card that makes your money back. Topps is after all a company that sells cardboard to make money. Not saying i support them pumping garbage, but come on. You can't expect this to be the secondcoming of christ in the form of cards
