The new Hotness…
I am gonna make a generalization and say most collectors are a little tired of relic cards. Autos also seem a little boring. So whats the new big thing?
It seems the card companies are making a run at reviving an older concept and making it the new hotness. Die-cutting.
Die-cut cards aint nothin’ new. They have been around for a few decades. They reached a fever pitch and the late ’90s and then pretty much disappeared.
Now it seems justa bout every preview of a new set includes die-cut cards.
Even well established brands like bowman chrome, a brand that has traditionaly had a very conservative flavor design wise got into die-cutting.
Collectors seem ready for die-cutting second coming. Just look how well received last years Topps Diamond die-cuts went over.
Die-cutting can be very useful.
Cards with this type of rounded die-cut corners make acidental corner damage when putting a card in a page or a case non-existent.
I for one welcome our new die-cut overlords.
But nay sayers and Debbie Downers don’t worry. This too will get run into the ground 😉
