  1. You dirty rotten Joe Colector…why is that Longoria card blue? What’s the deal with that? And does Mojo have anything to do with Austin Powers?

  2. is that ‘baby blue’ longoria the base set color? that’s a really great looking card… If so, I’m definitely getting some blasters of this stuff…

  3. That checklist is a joke. Don’t bother (topps, not you M) posting it until it’s complete. Sheeesh.

    Chemgod, I always “wait til next year” before buying most products. Save a ton of cash that way. And since redemptions now have a longer shelf life, it makes even more sense. Good thing cards don’t go stale, like gum does. (props to Chris H.)

  4. I heard there will 1 of 1 sketch cards. Each card an orginal piece of art. I have heard of this in Movie cards but not baseball cards. What do you think about these type of cards in baseball cards…
    …as collectors, whats your opinion?

  5. to get an original piece of art? thats gotta be a great thing .. and its as 1/1 as you can get (impossible to produce ever again) .. hopefully they wont water it down with unlimited reprints.. that would really ruin whats so special about it .. when i was a kid, i hated the donruss ‘diamond king’ series.. it got very sickening after seeing it for the 10,000th time…. great idea by topps though, and i like that their using multiple artists
