    Night Crew 74 Thanks Topps

    Last night was not too good for Topps, everyone would rather get under 5 hours sleep plus get a giant thumb up their ass instead of buying their product.

    I haven't purchased a box since 2009. I'd love to but nothing out there is enticing enough for the financial risk. hell, I debate buying a blaster or two each year.
    did well with the couple I did this year, selling the hits for about 5x the cost.

    Say what you want about Topps, but they’re much better than anything else out there.

    Let the MLB know you’d like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.

    They all have or had their suck points in one way or another. UD, Topps, Fleer, Donruss, etc. I will forever be pissed at the thought of Fleer, since they are gone. That redemption fiasco right before bankruptcy was the worst. UD jerked me on a redemption as well and their CS team blew when it came to trying to get a solid answer on production of said redemption.

    I say bring in some competition again and force better ideas, products & service or let them all fail trying.

    I don’t think Topps is that bad.

    I miss Upper Deck, and DLP more so, but Topps has been putting out some creative and nice products lately. I like what they’ve been doing.

    Yes, they are kings of an empty kingdom. You need a logo to make a baseball card... otherwise its just a pic of a buff dude.

    Hopefully UD comes back like Papa thinks, that would be badass.

    See, that's the kind of customer service Topps never gives. A handjob from a baseball card redemption boggles my mind, that must have been a rare "pull".

    It could be much worse guys.

    We COULD only have Leaf to choose from.

    License or not, their entire product and operation is hot garbage.

    Yeah, I am just joking with you guys (as usual) about Topps. UD has burned me with redemptions back in the day.

    I wonder if Leaf has read this?!

    @Super Mario

    I think we need a daily segment on here called "Sams Stories" where you go into the origin story of your (many) rivalries... maybe starting with Brian Gray. Did you buy a box and get ripped off or something?

    No.

    I just loved REAL Leaf and hate that he has bastardized the name.

    Come up with a new concept, don’t purchase the name of a precious one, pass it off as your own, then make it less than what it was.

    I was recently taking to someone about this and I said that Razor may have sucked too, but at least that was his own idea and he was trying to create something new on his own.

    Then I was informed that actually wasn’t the case and Razor wasn’t his idea either.

    Which doesn’t surprise me.

    I get the sense the they don't have the POP that the real Crusades have in person, but if someone likes it then fair enough.
