    You do know that Topps has released Drumpf cards, right?
    "...it just sounded to me like he felt like he did not do it."

    He throws the most tremendous circle change. Believe me. Luxurious movement.

    And why should they? An incredibly unpopular president, whose supporters in general aren't interested in cards, in a card market that long ago was over-saturated with political cards makes for a very easy decision for Topps. It's nothing more than good old American capitalism.
    I'm DelBacon on Sportlots, tons of great cards!

    I agree 100%. I actually voted for Trump in the general election (couldn't get past the free college, $15 minimum wage push, and gun platform, etc.). IMO, the Dems had the worst candidate (and platform) in modern history. Anyways, everyone should be entitled to their opinions withot personal ridicule, regardless of their political or religious affiliations, just as Topps has a right to not produce a card honoring Trump. It's their company, and I honestly can't blame them in the current political climate. On the original point of PCISM at Topps and of today's PC culture, it's kind of sad where we're at - way too PC.

    I don't keep any political cards I give those to elementary schools .
    BTW ; all those GOING to leave have they left yet or they are the biggest liars just out for the $$$ . 200 of Congress are millionaires now just how are they helping the working class ?
    Offended by the Cleveland logo = remove all their game records but do the same with A's - elephant = political party , Yankees - i'm from the south ,Angels - Padres-religious ,Brewers -alcohol , Pirates . I could go on .
    I change channels on TV if I disagree , VOTE my choice and will VOTE against next time if offended. I'm to old to cry like a baby at everything .
    I will talk to anybody at local stadium even other teams fans - locals get enough of me LOL.

    The moment someone starts calling a political figure names like O'bummer and Drumpf, they immediately lose all credibility with me, and I stop listening to what they have to say, and that goes for both parties.

    Legally, yes.

    Technically, no IMHO.

    It's the same guy that's behind benchwarmers and some of the boxes are shrink-wrapped in benchwarmers-labeled shrink wrap. I believe the one case I even bought from the decision 2016 website came from the same address for benchwarmers. That's why I consider this benchwarmers even though Brian created a separate legal entity for the Decision 2016 product.

    Do we know if this is Topps decision or if it was directed by MLB?
    Finish your sets! Check my sportlots inventory. 350,000 cards listed!
    Shipping capped at $3.00 for any order in the United States
    I'm letting my Football and Hockey collections go - I've lowered prices almost all of my football and hockey cards on sportlots. Mostly inserts, SPs and premium cards - take a look!

    Well said. I've got family and friends on both sides of the political spectrum we still get along...except none of them get my love for cardboard.
