Default Tags vs Patches

I don't know about you guys but I am not sufficiently aroused by these "partial" laundry tags.

I find them to be much less aesthetic than just good old fashion patches. Obviously having the entire tag is really sweet but breaking these tags into tiny bit and putting them in windows just doesn't do it for me. For the lack of better word, I find them rather ugly at times. IMHO

Case in point, I know these are rare cards but to my it just doesn't have the eye appeal. I would much rather having them all being replaced by nice 3-CLR patches. HOw do you guys feel about that?





well... I guess I just like them patches

I agree, I'd take a patch over a tag 95% of the time, even the full tags. There are some tags I like (Every Player/Every Game), but most of them I don't care for.

Also love that Hibbert!

I think that Duncan one that you showed is awesome! It has the year of jersey used in each spot, that in my mind, is much more historically significant

I'm a patch guy as well, but when they're done well, you can't beat tags.

I think it all depends on how they are presented on the card. I do think generally patches are better than tags since you have the team colors there.

I've never really seen the appeal of tags.

They're not attractive and it just doesn't do it for me.

Patches all day.

Yeah since the new Adidas jerseys came in a couple of seasons ago tags lost their lustre. That Duncan at the top is all just Meigray year tags which kinda sucks.

Some tags can be amazing though -

I'm more partial to patches, but can't help myself when tags look like this:

I like tags, but those tag booklets with size tags etc are so darn ugly. Seen one seen them all. The older school ones are sweet

I like tags too but I'm not a fan of these booklets they just look dull to me....I do have a question though, what's Derrick Rose doing on a "Veteran" booklet?

That Kevin Love card is one of the few cards I wouldn't mind having even with a sticker autographs. I don't like them at in general, but with a sick patch like that, I could look the other way. I would buy that card just for the GU in it, and the sticker is just a bonus. Now, take that card with NO gu in it..... no thanks. Sick card.
