Default 2014 Topps series 1 design

After looking at some of box break posts I really like the "Future is Now" cards. Topps should have used it as their base design instead of the one we're stuck with (it looks like one of the old UD MVP designs).

I thought it was going to be hard for Topps to beat last year's design and it looks like it was hard. Future is Now cards are pretty cool though.

Agreed. 2013's design was my favorite in years.

The Future is Now cards remind me of Inception, which is very nice. Me likey.

this years design is ruined by that ridiculous text running (team name) down the right side ... hate when type is staked like that ...

I am not understanding all the random color parallels. Sure the Blue, Red whatever. But now there's a yellow and a putrid looking green one as well...

I think the design is pretty atrocious. If they had maybe shown some restraint instead of throwing like 3 different design elements into it, it might be upgraded to adequate. As is, it's just way too much.

I was wonderingg how they were going to beat 2013's because 2013's was a true beauty. Last years was amazing. Havent seen the 2014's in person yet so I dont know if Ill like them or not.

I haven't met anyone who really likes this design. I agree that it could have been decent without the unnecessary jagged team name on the side. Mixing the smooth lines of the waves at the bottom just doesn't fit with the robotic side box.

I do like the card backs though. They're pretty identical to 2012 & 2013, but they added WAR which is awesome for a sabre nerd like me. I just want to know what version of WAR they're using.

I kind of like it in pictures so far. The future is now is nice, but if ey used that as main set they can't do the colored borders, base is going to have white for all the colored parallels. Can't wait to see it in person tomorrow.

I despise horizontal base cards and this is loaded with them.

Too many inserts and different colors in retail, I like the design but the team names can be tough to read. Especially like the Commemorative Rookie Patch cards. [IMG][/IMG]

After seeing the Clear parallels, I think the more "modern" design will work on something like that, otherwise, not much of a change, except more "cartoonish-modern-computerized" than last year's design.

I give the base a 5/10 but the future is now a 10/10

I might be in the minority, but I like this years design.

My opinion (without having any in-hand): base 8/10, future is now 6/10.

I like it as well. I think Topps did a great job with the design this year. Can't wait for Topps Chrome!

the wave at the bottom is what bothers me the most. theres two waves going in 2 different directions. they should have just had a clean line there .

the team on the side dont realy bother me at all. but once again if they had a straight line in place of that stupid wave it would look alot cleaner. they could have kept the team logo on the far left and the name and position of the athlete right below the line or border ..... what ever you want to call it. the design would have looked so much cleaner .
