This quote from Lewis Grizzard pretty much describes my feelings towards the new Topps/UD brouhaha. If you haven't heard about it, just check the links on the sidebar. There's bound to be a few posts about it over there for the next couple of days. It's just more corporate horsecrap that will end up funnelling what litle cash they have left out of designing and manufacturing the product and into some lawyers' pockets. Upper Deck thought they could stick it to Topps by buying up O-Pee-Chee and Topps is going to try to stick it to UD by suing at a point in time where UD is vulnerable after losing Yu-Gi-Oh and basketball. While they are sticking it to each other, their customers end up stuck so Feh to both of them. I don't feel like hashing this nonsense out anymore so here's a soggy magnetic schedule I picked up from the Braves game the other day.
A mint copy of one of these things is probably rarer than a T206 Honus as most of them got flooded in the great opening day monsoon.
