    I would garner to guess a lot of people get turned off by the non logo. As long as your happy and like the cards enjoy what I say.

    What products do you like that Panini puts out? You state Topps gives you the same old tired products. Do you not see Panini doing the same thing by bunching out the same ole same ole product today as yesterday and years before while adding a few new additions.

    I was hoping someone would answer like this. In the 90s there were 5 fully licensed companies out there producing MLB products. That competition led to some pretty innovative card designs during that time. Now with only Topps being the lone fully licensed company,they can afford to be lazy putting the same tired autographs and game used of all the same tired players and folks still buy into it. For me,it's gotten to the point where autographs and game used cards don't carry the same weight as they did 15-20 years ago because they're so plentiful. Card designs from both companies seem to look the same every year as well. Topps High Tek was a step in the right direction,but even those cards look kinda cheap compared to when they came back in 2014.

    I think anyone will agree that competition is good for the industry. Topps can not be lazy as there other Companies making other cards out there. The only difference is that they have no logo. If they produce a better product with only that one missing element if they do not put out a good product they will hurt their bottom line big time. As for your point on autographs and game used cards not carrying weight that on the consumer. As that is what the consumer (market) has driven the companies to provide. Would you buy a case that only had 1 game used per case like in the past?
