And Topps, Meanwhile, Continues Its Grim Slide.

Here we go again with another "Chris bitches about the latest Topps bullshit gimmick" post.


Another Topps product, another bullshit gimmick card. Who cares, right?

I'm curious to know (and for all you dealers out there, I'd appreciate your feedback), if the gimmicks really have stimulated demand for Topps wax. (Or not?)

And for all you Favre collectors (why you'd be reading a baseball card blog, I don't know), does this make you want to go out and rip a wax box of 2008 Bowman? Or were you planning on buying (or not buying) a box of Bowman anyway?

UMMM, IIIIII..... WANT TO HEARRRRR...... FROM YOU CARD COLLECTORS!!!!

SHOW ME YOUR LIGHTNING BOLT! GIMMICK CARDS!

(Rome Clones may, or may not, get that last reference.)

Umm, this wont be a gimmick card. It will be regularly inserted into Bowman packs. So, yeah.

Back on May 30, you listed a bunch of cards that you called gimmicks. Of that list, I have the following:

Alay Soler (2006 Topps II)

Derek Jeter (and friends) (2007 Topps).

Jacoby Ellsbury (2007 Topps U&H).

Poley Walnuts (2007 Topps U&H).

Kazuo Uzuki (2008 Topps I).

And the 2008 infamous SP Series II Six. Which would you like to see???

Sincerely,
