    Old = new idea...? (Card/Insert design idea)

    Just thought of a cool idea for a insert. Remember back when Donruss had the puzzles in packs of cards? Well this is similar to that but each piece would be the size of a card seeded individually so you would have to find all 12 pieces to make the full puzzle picture. But it gets better, each piece and/or puzzle would be serial numbered and one piece would be autographed. Below is an example of what I am thinking but obviously there could be many players/puzzles. Each puzzle piece could come framed or in a rip card or something. Anyway, I think it would be fun, your thoughts?

    Love it

    Topps would never go for it though...Making something like that would take effort and effective design

    It's a nice idea, but no one cared about building Donruss puzzles for the ten years they existed, so I don't see much excitement now.
    And the long odds of pulling the autographed and numbered pieces means 99% of people building the puzzles will have incomplete ones, frustrating them, especially kids.
    But it's a creative idea.

    I like the idea.

    I don't have Photoshop skills but if I did, I would post a redemption card good for a puzzle piece auto

    Ha - how about the Topps Redemption card puzzle - with one digit to the redemption code on each piece. Once you assemble it, you type in the code and wait forever to never get the card. I mean, really, it's the only way to make the whole redemption thing more frustrating than it already is.

    I like it but hate the idea of rip cards.

    You left out "code not valid"

    Of course this would rely on all pieces being accountable for, sitting on 11 pieces and waiting 2 years for if and when the auto piece ever gets made would be unacceptable. The more I think of it, the more I like the idea of a rip card theme. Each rip card can say something like "congratulations, you have just pulled a Bryce Harper puzzle piece and have a 1 in 12 chance of pulling a auto piece. Rip or flip?"

    I'm not so sure I agree with that. Everyone I knew had one of each, it's just they were so common they held little to no value. I believe this idea here, in concept, would be much more received. Obviously just my opinion...

    I like the idea too...

    The way they could make it work, make regular versions of the puzzle and every piece has a regular puzzle piece and an auto variation, so you could make a whole puzzle with all autos or no autos...
