chrome would be nice.

I would just like them to slow it down to 1 release a year for a couple of years.

Gets the guys to sign so no stickers, and really put a solid product out.

The problem of course lies in why try hard when you have no competition to motivate you!

1) Slow down their releases... Every product has a ton of autos, parallels, and relics. It's getting flooded for the market size.

2) GET THEIR OUTSTANDING REDEMPTIONS FILLED! I skipped Bloodlines, and will skip Knockout and every future UFC product until they start filling these old redemptions. How is it that I still have a 2010 Knockout Full Contact Auto redemption waiting, when he signed his 2011 Knockout Autos on card??? That makes no sense. Plus I have other Silva, Aldo, Brock, etc. that I've been waiting for a long time. It's just ridiculous.

3) More on card autos, and less stickers... at least in the high end product! Bloodlines was fairly high end I think? I didn't pay it much attention... but I don't think I saw any on card autos in it at all.

4) More low end products. What was the last low end product? MOT?

Finest=Chrome. I don't see Topps changing the name.

way to many releases of late...they def need to slow down...every release just waters down an already flooded marketplace. I would like to see a legends subset...not like they have done before though...real legends of the sport..from pride and early ufc's....also i think a cool idea would be a redemption (THAT IS FULFILLED) of several famous camps and have like top 10 fighters sign a poster..like AMA...blackzillas...the pit...that would be cool...or signed posters of an entire fight card.....they must get innovative...there are only so many stipe miocic autos i can stand......

Ive slowed big time on buying UFC stuff. I did buy one the of the Bruce Buffer "Its Time" redemptions from my LCS but thats it. Everything is just so watered down and the resale prices are so low it is next to impossible to do any good. No way GSP autos and Anderson Silva hould be going for 50 or so bucks.

Technically yes, but too similar. Topp won't have both for the same sport.

Well, this a cool post. I think that Topps has been doing a solid job of producing these UFc cards, but maybe they can raise the bar and upgrade their rotation with a High end series. I love the Five Star football and Baseball series from them, so maybe they could do one for UFC. It would be awesome, and they could and fight worn trunks, gloves etc. Maybe even a grand prize of fight tickets.

round 1 had redemptions for tickets(now expired) but yeah they should do that again, there is part of"hopefully" fight used gloves in the next KO, there will be book cards with the UFC logo from the glove, looks to be the best insert set in a while.

Topps already announced there will be no UFC finest this year, they are doing an entirely new set. But still 3 releases in 2014(KO, ??, and Bloodlines)

need to scrap bloodlines....that is just awful...both years...horrible product....KO/Finest are the best two they have...mix in another cheap one...like MOT....so you have 3 products like $55, $80, $130...

Bloodlines as whole is not the greatest, but still has some very nice cards. And sketches are some of the highest selling cards out there right now. I wouldn't mind if they got rid of it, as long as the sketches are part of KO, or the new set.
