Topps Outdoes Itself Again.

I'd like to be a fly on the wall in the product development meetings. Seriously, how does Topps come up with stuff this stupid?



I'd imagine the conversation went a little something like this...

"Hmmm... I got a great idea! Let's make fake `Relic' cards of fictional characters, and randomly insert them into our premiere $100/pack relic-themed baseball card product. And on top of that, let's not bother telling anyone about it until AFTER the dumb schmucks who buy this garbage spend their money and discover our latest gimmick!"

Panini... SAVE US!!!!

Be on the lookout for Pecos Bill as well. It seemed like it slipped out briefly during the interview.

HEY. John Henry is a very underrated They Might Be Giants album! I'd love to have a John Flansburgh relic!

sheesh, I'd love a Flans relic, too, but that's not what this is.

Who the fuck is John Henry? Thank god I don't have a gamblers mentality and waste my money on this BS.

I'd say this is a gamechanger.

John Henry was a steel driving man.

You can crap in onw hand and wish Panini saves baseball cards in the other and see which one fills up first. They're are a few steps down from both Topps and Upper Deck in Basketball. With Panini, this card would have 30 different versions each slightly different than the next with different serial numbering for each. The price per pack would also be 50% higher.
