Frustrated with Topps lately, they have been cutting corners on production quality.

They got rid of the small authentic stamp on the back of autographs with the black hologram a while ago. Then, I bought a Torre Archives auto to find that the authentic stamp is not a foil stamp but printed on. That just looks so ameteur! Like someone printed the card at home. Come on and shell out the extra bit for foil stamps.

With archive buybacks this stamp is randomly placed, grossly off centered in many cards. Completely ruins the look.

The back of these auto cards is glossy, not paper backs like the original cards.

Even their high end stuff looks all the same, gray silvery.

They need to start paying attention to these smaller details again!
