    2017 topps tribute vs. donruss

    I just stopped by my only local card store to help support them by buying some packs. i got one topps tribute and a couple donruss.
    I could not believe the junk i pulled from the tribute. for 50 bucks i got a very thick card with a tiny piece of gu where for 4 bucks donruss i got a huge piece of gu.
    come one topps .. for 50 bucks give up a bigger piece of GU...

    The Topps $27,000 pack didn't have much more than that, so what do you expect for $50 from Topps? At least it is a new card, and not a stamped card issued years ago or a recycled picture. Yay Donruss!

    The Donruss GU piece may be bigger, but the card looks like total ass, both in design and the blank uniform and cap.
    The Topps card is beautiful. Not $50 beautiful, but a great looking card.

    I much prefer the Topps card. Much better design and licensed.

    Id prefer the donruss card if the design was better. Doesn't even need to be licensed, just better looking. But I do agree with the OP, for the $ topps charges, put a bigger piece of jersey material on it

    Buy singles from ebay. For most athletes, you can find a giant topps jersey swatch or patch (sometimes even an auto) for $50 or less.

    I'm fairly convinced the only people really supporting my LCS are the ones coming in and buying a case of new product. I support the place by buying supplies, sets, and the occasional single or box. But with the minimal margins to be gained, I'm not sure I'm helping much.
