    Bowman Chrome deciding we needed several variants of colors, backgrounds, and SP auto's..

    Topps Now and their creation of a daily card for when a player does something.. Maybe they will have a team card for when there is a rainout..

    Hahahah. I laughed pretty hard at this response. Because if I didn't, the only other choice was to cry.

    Lot of Puerto Ricans illegally crossing the southern border to take baseball jobs from AMERICANS.

    That should have been on my list. Great set, great idea, one tiny little problem.

    Is that water dangerous because it's wet ? I can't see the bottom of it. Your mom's gonna get mad if you go in over your knees.

    How about those 90s mystery finest cards with that black peel which is super hard to peel off?

    Didn't Topps produce a set for each sport that was all ready in a plastic slab ? Sort of like PSA slabs. One card in each pack I think.
    Thank you Ralph.

    Remember those "dare to tear?" cards where a mini card is inside with a random value? They should bring back that concept but only put shtty tablecloth cards on the inside.

    My BEST ideas

    -Topps/Panini/UD (whomever has the license) form a partnership with Nike/adidas/UA and insert a pack within shoe boxes. If you can get those collectors on board, you've got a whole new base. Plus I LOVE the idea of cards inserted into products. That's our origin and should get back to that.

    Redemption cards with expiration dates are the worst. All the other ideas mentioned, I like some, dislike others, but none really make me upset. But if you buy a pack of cards more than 3 years old, or less in some cases, why should you not get the card you are promised? What do they do with them, throw them out? Backdoor them? Redemptions should be good for a MINIMUM of 10 years, if you're going to put a limit on it. And if you can't fulfill the redemption for some reason, send the person a full box of cards, or a generous replacement, not going by Beckett or ebay or some other ridiculous metric. Be UP FRONT and GENEROUS about how you'll compensate your customer for your screwup.

    Not to mention the fact that redemptions open the door for shenanigans about promising value they potentially never intend to deliver. Redemption cards for things that will never be made, or autographs of players they don't have under contract, all sorts of ridiculous things. There was that golden baseball fiasco. Something like a gold-leafed baseball signed by Willie Mays, except Mays wasn't under contract, or refused to sign it, or something. Took forever to get that item to that person.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases, and any Grady Sizemores I don't have
