And the winner is 2009 Topps Flagship brand. I have not even opened another brand this year, but Topps takes the cake. I went to Target last night and purchased a blaster of ’08 Goudey and 4 packs of ’09 Topps. The Goudey was fun as expected. The Topps was dreadful and very disappointing. The Topps foil stamp in the top right of each card was flaking away and the ’09 design is boring, bland, and unoriginal.
It may be the worst product I have EVER opened. I highly recommended no one buy this product. I just can not get over how boring this product was. The Toppstown.com cards look terrible, perhaps they are geared towards children (and that’s fine), but I am not a fan.
The only card I enjoyed was the Turkey Red card I received. But even the Turkey Red looks the same every year and just does not excite me. ’09 Heritage can not get here soon enough. 2009 is off to a horrible start! Who will step up and capture my attention and wallet?
