The Death of the Manu-Craptured Letter Patch. WE WONNED!!!

Sometimes, they actually do listen to what the collectors actually want.

It was revealed today that much hated manufactured letter patch has been dropped from 2011 Finest Baseball.

The collectors spoke and finally, The Hobby listened.

Now, if they would only...

* ... replace Opening Day with Topps Total,

* ... stop insulting our intelligence with gimmicks,

* ... bring back the etched-chrome cardstock in Finest, BowChro, and Topps Chrome,

* ... eliminate half the inserts in Topps and Bowman,

* ... give Jefferson Burdick his own card in 2012 Allen & Ginter,

* ... return the Topps flagship to a 792-card base set, and...

* ... bring back Stadium Club and Topps Gallery,

... I'd be a happy collector.

Couldn't agree more.

I agree with pretty much everything you said.

But if you are replacing OD with Total (an okay idea), I would transfer all the inserts (which were great this year) from OD to the flagship (which sucked this year).
