2012 Topps Baseball Design Revealed

2012 Topps Baseball Design Revealed

This afternoon Topps offered the first look at their design for the flagship 2012 Topps Baseball set via Twitter:

It's a very minimal design featuring a white border and lots of room for the photo. The nameplate on the bottom stands out with a sunburst feel to it.

Just the one image of Ryan Braun was teased, however expect more to come.

Ryan is a former member of The Cardboard Connection Writing Staff.   His collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

Looks cheap. I know the 61st of anything isn’t really all that special, but don’t you think Topps could spend more than 30 seconds putting together a product that has the potential for millions in revenue? If I’m on the Topps future design committee, my FIRST act would be to poll collectors (obviously a large task, but we’re taking a leap in reality already, right?) and find out what the CONSUMERS WANT. Find a way to make each year’s set special/unique and we might actually see some kind of resurgence in the popularity of set collecting. But hey what do I know, I only buy the stuff….well not next year’s.

I don’t like it either…
this design is boring, and not very creative.
The inserts are decent, the rest is pretty bad.


I don’t like it…
