Not sure how many of you collect but Upper Deck just settled with MLB because Topps is now the exclusive maker of baseball cards... not since 1980 has topps had such exclusive rights. Football (upper Deck), basketball (Panini) and hockey (Upper Deck) have all decided to go with one licensed maker of trading cards for its sport. While I think this will drastically cut the amount of different products made each year... i think its bad in general for the hobby.

upper deck and panini still make baseball cards they just cant show any mlb logo and they cant say the teams name... ie... they can list boston as the team but cant list red sox and cant show the teams logo

i dont get it either, like how MVP Baseball for PS2 had to be a college game one year because 2K sports was granted the exclusive rights. the NCAA game ended up being the best baseball game ever, but i dont get how that actually happened

Don't.

Blame the card manufactures that put out products that cost $500 a PACK. And that put out way too many products. And that don't get kids interested in collecting because they don't make any cheap cards.
