  1. I H8 San Diego Comic Con. I wish GPK wouldn’t support a show that you can’t get into. Especially with so short notice. Supporting an event and company like this in no way is for the collector.

  2. Agreed. Topps doesn’t seem to want to support shows where the GPK fans DO go like Gross Card Con or the Philly Non Sport Show. Card companies like Cryptozoic and Sidekick consistently attend the Philly Show and they put out awesome quality card sets to boot. Topps has gotten too big to actually care about the real fan base of their brands and it’s become more about their image as a company and not the image of their products.
