    Re: Topps 5 star design

    If someone has the energy or the time, would love to see how many times topps has used the same photo for say a group of five random players for all their products this year. Do you think they even use photos from prior years?

    Wow those designs are so close on the game used and silver sigs its just sad. The use of the same pictures, same size GU, and silver on black topps should be ashamed of this. Its just the same set at a higher price.

    Topps has used the same photo over multiple products for years now and also used the same photo for multiple years.

    Yeah, certainly nothing new. Lame, especially in the same year, but surprised it seems to come as a shock. Hell, refractor cards are the same damn photo, in the same set, but just with a different color border.


    I don't really understand the whole uproar over the Five Star in the first place. All of the complaints are nothing new at all, it's stuff that's been going on for years now, and nobody is holding a gun to anybodies head forcing them to buy it. Does that make it right? No, not at all. Well, the not holding a gun to their head is a good thing anyway. I just find it strange that there isn't a whole lot of hub bub about everything else but people are blowing their load over this.

    I think the difference is that the higher priced a product is the more that is expected from it. I mean a person who buys a $5,000 tv probably expects more performance and quality then a $100 tv. Also I mean to have almost every card damaged really is inexcusable even for a $1 product.

    Why? The MC was the best card in a 1-hit pack, the 5S was the worst card in a 5-hit pack...

    How can Topps improve on a jumbo jersey card? tHE JERSEY TAKES UP 80% OF THE CARD.

    Yep. The one from the cheaper product has a border, so no chipping. And it's lower numbered by almost 1/3.
