In two products I have recently opened I have noticed the start of a new trend. I will call it the swipe. Here, have a look.
See the little swipe of stuff over the bottom left corner of the jersey piece.
I have no strong feelings either way. It does separate the design from the pack, so that os something.
These two sets were released so close to one another that it can’t be a case of stealing. I think it is a clear case of Simultaneous Invention .
I am sure there are people out there that hate it and scream about the damn card companies, etc, etc… I am not one of those people so I am cool with the new trend in relic windows.
That aside, how cool is that Buster Posey jersey card? The design is almost overdone. It’s all weird and has shapes floating around, and the little dot embossed name thing but it works. It looks like what someone in the late ’80s would pictures cards in the future looking like…and they would be right!
