A letter to Mr. Topps...

Dear Mr. Topps, 

May this day find you well. I hope the wife is having fun on that extended weekend vacation with the kids. It's a shame you weren't able to go, but with all the releases coming out, she understands how busy you are. I hope I am not bothering you, but I wanted to first thank you for some of the product lately. Getting that super short print of Mr. Bryce Harper into the Archives product sure made me happy when I was able to find one in a pack. Yes, I did fairly well on eBay with that one. And I wanted to mention how nice it was that you brought back some die cut cards in series two of your main baseball product. You also just put this year's Allen and Ginter on the shelves and many of us simply love it.

That being said, I hope you hear the next things I say, and understand that I want to improve for 2013 and not just complain. For starters, this year's redemption product on line is not as much fun as past years. Many of us like the vintage card possibilities. If you could revert back to that, instead of the virtual coins and new cards, it would be very appreciated. Second, Allen and Ginter is fantastic, but I think you are missing a prime opportunity in a card you have yet to release. See, you seem to put the A&G product out in the middle of July. Well, back on July 12th, 1979, a pretty famous event happened. Something that is still talked about today as we talk about Cal Jr.'s Ironman record, Babe Ruth's called shot, Jackie stealing home in the World Series and other famous events. I took the time to mock up what that card would look like. Maybe in 2013 we can see this?

Thanks for reading. I look forward to Triple Threads.
