AMOUNT SPENT ON 2012 TOPPS BASEBALL: $0.00

I will collect Topps no more.

Tell General Olds I know his heart. What he told me before, I have it in my heart.

I am tired of the bullshit.

Our Topps sets are ruined.

Kazuo Uzuki. Pies-in-the-face. Diamond Sparkles.

The old collectors are leaving. It is the young who say yes or no.

It is almost Spring, and 2012 Topps Flagship is not "Game Changing." It is merely more of the same.

My people, some of them, have run away to vintage, and 90s wax. No one knows if they will come back, if ever.

Hear me, my collectors! I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will collect Topps no more.

I'll definitely be collecting the 2012 Topps set.

In 2017, when 2012 factory sets are 10 bucks at card shows.

Whatevuh hater. I just pick up a master set of each series now for the price of a hobby box. No SPs, but the base and all inserts. That is the only way to go now.
Oh man. Change the letter positions on the security word and you have where all the set ideas come from: bowles.
