I was looking at Becketts blog and saw the preview images of Topps Tier 1.
I clicked the link and scanned down the page. I looked at the cards and just was sorta like “hmmm”.
I don’t hate them or anything, I was just whatever.
I just don’t like the patinaed old-timey effect on the background.
Topps is a great company that has made tons of great cards, hell they pretty much invented the modern sports card. So why do they need to keep making cards that look “classic” and old timey? We know you have a storied history please stop force-feeding it to us.
It’s kinda boring right? It’s nothing new; it looks like a high-end set designed to look like a high-end set.
I just can’t bring myself to care about them.
It’s not hard to get my attention. Just put one element that grabs my attention. Be it a cool new design, cleaver use of color, a cool photo, anything, I am really easy to please. But you aint gonna win me over with forced classiness.
I don’t know, maybe I am just in a bad mood.
I really like the birdie.
