While I think there needed to be another option besides Panini, I hope that Topps looks at some of their less successful releases from last year and not carry them over into the new season.

Yeah I can't wait for some Bowman Chrome. Did you guys see the little sneak peak of the card giveaway in there. It looks like they might be doing a "million card giveaway" thing like they did with baseball this year. That would be sweet to pick up some nice old school cards. Maybe a Jerry Rice rookie, or Joe Montana, Bart Starr rookie, oh man I hope that is what they are going to do.
