    Topps extends exclusive deal with MLB thru 2025...

    Topps just announced their exclusive deal with MLB is going to run now through 2025.

    Personally, NOT a fan of exclusive contracts for any league, but given Donruss/Panini's quality products lately, definitely not in baseball.

    Limited releases? Sure. More low end stuff? Definitely. But exclusives in all four sports? No thanks.

    I know everyone likes to hate Panini but competition brings out quality. I was hoping both would get licensed and the entire marketplace would get a better quality product.

    Damnit. What a terrible decision by MLB. Damnit.

    One of the best parts of having a player collection is thumbing through cards from years ago and looking at what the different manufacturers were doing, the ideas they had, the designs they came up with, and interesting stories behind different sets. Now? Just a glut of Topps, Topps, Topps, Topps, Topps, and more freaking Topps. And many of which are indistinguishable from each other. Oh yeah and some unlicensed Panini (which are occasionally cool).

    Thanks for nothing MLB.

    Ugh. Well, it's a good thing I don't buy new crap from them, minus Living Set. Then again, maybe I'll stop that, too.

    A few thoughts that come to mind after hearing the news...







    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Man, it just seems like such a good idea to issue licenses to, like, 3-4 companies, and let them do, like, 8-10 products a year, each?

    Maybe the argument is that "product" is harder and harder to define (Topps' online releases are getting harder to define/numerate, for example), and it would be bad to stifle creativity and innovation. But if saturation is the issue, fewer products across multiple companies seems a solid solution.

    Oh well.

    Prizm just needs logos to have any hobby love. I like Prizm's etching effects which I think Chrome ditched years ago for whatever reason.

    Kudos to Wax Heaven for breaking the news, albeit unwanted by collectors, on the renewal of the exclusive.
