An Early Preview: 2013 Topps

Well, it's that time of the year that Topps has officially announced the design for next years product. Even though the season hasn't ended yet, I really like this design. The only thing i have an issue with is the parallels. I was saying to myself a week ago "what if they released a number of different parallels such as a blue, diamond, copper, etc?" and of course i was right, they plan on doing so. I don't mind one, but three is pushing it just a little bit.

I think this will be a nice addition to my already unstoppable collection, the 1972 Mini's should be pretty fun insert set to collect. I am hoping by some miracle they also release a sell sheet of next year's Heritage, but i won't hype myself up just yet as they will probably release it in October again. This is the design for those who haven't seen it, tell me what you think:

The Great 1971 Topps Project

Well, one of the nicest (not to mention one of my favorite) designs for this set took another step of epic proportions towards completion. Here it is:

Of course some of you may notice a little minor wear in the lower right hand corner, but, as usual this is me caring.
