Topps Series 1
Topps Opening Day
Topps Pro Debut
Topps National Chicle
Topps Series 2 (5/27)
Allen & Ginter (6/25)
Topps Tribute (7/22)
Topps T206 (9/1)
Seeing everything Topps has lined up in one place brought these questions to my mind:
Why does one third of the scheduled releases so far this year consist of retro sets?
Why were the two releases specifically aimed at children both released before the first game was even played?
Why is the only release geared toward high-end collectors (that would be Tribute, Finest is not even remotely high-end) being released after the All-Star Game?
Why is Topps Pro Debut a Hobby-only product?
Why does Bowman even exist in its current form when you have Topps Pro Debut??
Why is there a product for Opening Day, but nothing special for the All-Star Game or the Playoffs?
Why can't we have Legends sets anymore?
Why can't I find a decent release calendar on your own website?
And the main question I really need to ask:
Why am I so bored with 2010 baseball cards???
Sure, there will be another half-dozen sets released like Topps
Seriously, folks, I'm just utterly uninspired right now even though I really like a few of those sets on that list. Is this a Topps problem or a Me problem?
