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!!!!
