Topps Gimmick Fail

Even if you're ambivalent to gimmicks you have to admit, this is pretty stupid.

I guess if one dope wastes their money busting case after case chasing this tripe it pays for itself. Topps, you magnificent bastards.

Maybe the card should have been a highlight but this is another great card. Topps is giving their cards some personality but nothing too obtruse (Glenn Hubbard with a snake).

This is a fun card for the Yankee fans, and it's easy enough for set collectors to ignore. It's a good gimmick.

I cannot even tell it is a Teixeira card. And any card with AJ on it can BURN.

Is it really a gimmick anymore when it's the same tired act they've been running out there since 2006? What's the shelf life on gimmickry?

Oh, and the '84 Hubbard with Snake, Phanatic and Barney friggin Rubble beats the everlasting shit out of the Yankee bukkake party.

You're not going to believe this, but I just pulled a Pied Variation of Nick Swisher.

I'm not making it up. Will momentarily be posting it on my blog.
