UD Black football had a lot of cuts too, doesn't mean you should run out and bust that.

Why do they have to put cut signatures of people that are still alive? Also I believe that they should only be Baseball players.

100% agree. Plus the that list is huge and some of those names have been done to death. No pun intended.

Most of the names I recognized are deceased.

I'm glad they are at least releasing this list before release, but print runs will be interesting.

what will really be interesting is the cuts that are actually RELEASED.

topps has a habit of putting out one list of autos.......only to have that list look very different once the product hits the streets.

Does this list not remind you of the list that was suppose to be the 2008 Mystery Cut Redemption cards before they cut that list to pieces? There are some impressive names and I would love to see them make into the product, but I guess we will have to wait and see.

It's all about marketing. Just advertise a ton of cuts and water it down with cuts no one cares about. They need the non sport cheap cuts so they can produce more of it. In the mean time it leaves 90% percent of the people opening it crying with wrappers laying all over the floor. Card companies are out to take as much of your money as they can, while spending as little as they can. Not that you don't already know this.

I think releasing this cut checklist had opposite the intended effect. Yeah, there are some good names there, but if my cut case hit was Mark Belanger...I might be slightly annoyed.

That definitely will keep me from buying that product. It is one thing for Topps to water down a product like Topps Chrome with a lot of garbage autos (ie, a DB drafted in the 7th round who has already been released), but a cut auto is supposed to be a great and memorable pull, which can really only be the case if the cut auto is at least a somewhat desired collectible. The overwhelming majority of the names on that list are either (a) lackluster athletes, (b) or obscure historical figures. And even the few really great possible pulls are a dollar short of being truly epic, like a Ruth or Gehrig in sports or a Lincoln or Washington in history. Heck, most of the generals on that list are unknown to even the average history buff. No thanks, Topps.

Oh my gosh, that list of cuts keeps going and going and going with tons of people that I've never heard of. Maybe old school collectors will enjoy these cuts, but the younger generation of hobby enthusiasts will likely have a hard time putting money into a product like this. Maybe some of these people were famous in their own right during their time, but even if that's true, it doesn't make someone like me who doesn't know of them want to rip this product. Maybe Topps has made the decision to ignore the younger collector on their high end stuff since most can't afford it, but I think that is the wrong move wholeheartedly.

They should think about renaming the product to "Topps Sterling Cuts" this year. I know there are supposed to be 1 cut auto per case, but they might as well make it 5 with names like that.

Whatever happened to Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig Autographs?? I didn't find them on the list. Yet, they were on the sell-sheet brochure. Are they not producing them anymore?

After a quick scan of the list the following cuts, depending on # inserted should do better than average. Also the military figures should do OK as they cross multiple collecting lines, Sports, History, Military.

There are also regional ones that should be good. Belanger in Baltimore. Fydrich in MA and Mich plus there are a lot of "lower" love Hall Of famers.

Why Topps Why ????? Putting living people in as cut autographs Cheapens the product ! Learn from Upperdecks mistakes. If you want to put out a high end product, then keep it High end no Garbage cut autographs.
