1. Don't know if I care for the exclusive logo. Imagine a card with the exclusive and RC logo, I bet it would/will be pretty busy.

2. Looks like they are going to stay with Ibanez on the GU/Auto stuff. NICE!!

3. Why are people on beckett complain so much. Just shut up and enjoy the cards or do something else with your time.

edit: Interesting, check out this checklist. Is topps starting to distance itself from all the HR controversy or is it a 'rights' thing?

The photography just gets better and better, but I really wish Topps would drop the borders if they're going to keep cluttering the cards with massive logos or team names. Aside from that, the subsets all look the same as every year for the past 5-10. That's not to say they're ugly, just getting boring.
Three of those are somewhat negative. Perhaps making cards to commemorate those events is not something they see as a large selling point. Picture it now..."Oh boy, I pulled the WS Cancelled card. Whoo Hoo!!!"

Score did a Wrigley lights card already too.

As far as going international, what aspect do you mean exactly? Playing games in foreign countries? Still US teams playing. The influx of foreign born players? That has been happening for years., WS canceled due to strike?[/QUOTE]
They look nice to me.... cant wait to see the Chromes in person!
I think the design on the base cards looks a little cheap -- but hopefully the numbers on the back are easier to read than the 2009s.

Why could they just use the same design as the 2009 Topps football base? I'm a big fan of this design.
I hope the add to the cards your mother threw out set in series 2.
If they don't I would have rather seen these players than current ones.
Roberto Clemente
Ted Williams
Sandy Koufax
Don Drysdale
Willie Mays
Pete Rose
Willie Stargell
Lou Brock
Andre Dawson
Hank Aaron
Warren Spahn
Al Kaline
Bill Freehan

I really love the design of this set. Topps stole my idea of "when they were young". I have a nice picture of Miguel Cabrera when he was a little leaguer and made a custom of him now and then. Still haven't recieved it back yet.
