Topps Baseball (1951-2012). Cause of Death: O.G.

"Over Golded"



How do they expect us to collect it with all those junk inserts in it?

OBTW, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka is one of the greatest movies ever.

I bought two retail packs and wish I didn't. I really liked the photography from 2011 and 2010, but something is not quite right with 2012.

I'm not sure what it is... the player himself looks okay, but the rest of the card is ... airbrushed? grainy? pixelated? muted colors?

I have a card of Brett Morel making a play at 3B and the pitcher in the foreground is crouching so Morel can make the throw. But, what's this? The pitcher has eyes, but no visible mouth? Weird.

Conversely, everything in R.A. Dickey's card is crystal clear so that the collector can see the cool image of the groundscrew's NY Mets art on the back of the pitching mound.

What you'd come to expect when competition is removed from the market place.

Shame on Topps.
