I dont think its that bad, but I never waste my time with regular Topps anymore. You have almost a 0% chance of pulling anything worth more than a dollar or two. At least Chrome has the refractors and what not.

Smart...put the design plan out 6 months before the product comes out so you can take in all the negative feedback...horrible design...

I'll bust the jumbos and flip for a profit just like every year. I'm actually quite fond of the look of the base cards. Remember that this is the base Topps product, so why should it have all of the bells and whistles?

i dont know ? not sure how to describe it. topps is the cards i collected growing up. i do buy some every year. but i would buy more if it had a nicer design. the older designs were very nice.

you can pull something very big, but them pulls are very tough.

seems like everyone on here is just out to rip and flip. thats fine i mean its your choice. but does anyone here actualy keep anything ? i dont understand how you can enjoy the hobby if you just rip and flip everyhting.

I am (admittedly) one of those, but I can assure you there are many "collectors" out there. Most who buy cases make sets in addition to selling their hits. Don't worry, "collecting" is definitely not dead.
