I was literally just wondering what the design would be like. But yeah, this is garbage. Let us see the logo and text head on, that slant and angle is stupid

seems like they are trying to go as "NEW" as possible, I kinda like the classicness of the borders and basic designs of the past though..... it's not bad, it's just not what I really like best.

And thus continues the ascent into making stadium club their flagship. I like the design and think they have been going in the right direction.

I miss the borders too, but this feels like a big improvement on 2016 IMO.

They'll be beautiful in Chrome, I bet.

It makes me laugh. You guys complain about an
interesting design and put it down but look at the crap you use as your avatar for who you are))

Ugh, these look pretty terrible. 2016 was a decent design with a few flaws, but I can't really find anything redeeming with this right off the bat. It's just so hokey.

I just want the borders back. I want it not to be at a weird slant. And I want the team logo not jammed next to the name.

Secure the borders.

Make Topps great again.

Similar to 2016... OK, I guess.

Topps is getting as much as it possibly can from its MLB logos... would like to see some subtlety here for a change.

I guess the parallels will be distinguishable by the lower 'cloudy' part of the card beneath the team name.

It's not something that stands out but it's far from "terrible"
