2010 Topps: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

You saw my evaluation of Upper Deck’s flagship the other day, so as promised, here is the good the bad and the ugly of 2010 Topps.

THE GOOD- Steller base card design

Some might argue that this year’s Topps flagship design might be a step down from last years, but I, like others, have come to see that these cards are very bright, colorful, and bring back some of that child-like feel to card collecting.

THE BAD- ToppsTown is back

I’m pretty sure I speak for the majority of collectors when I say that these cards are complete garbage. This is a sad excuse by Topps as an insert and to me, these aren’t even real cards. The worst part of it all is that they count these ToppsTown cards as one of the 12 cards per pack which is a complete waste.

THE UGLY-Peak Performance inserts

One thing about Topps this year is that their is a large number of various inserts, however, one insert we would be better of without would be the peak performence inserts. I actually confused this with a ToppsTown card when I first saw it, which is pretty sad that these cards are so boring that they remind you of ToppsTown cards. The design is very boring and has no appeal to it at all. What’s worse is that they look even worse when featuring an old school player, as seen above.

What do you guys think of the 2010 Topps flagship this year?
