Topps signs exclusive deal with MLB!!!! What does it mean?
As of January 1, 2010 Topps will have an exclusive contract with Major League Baseball. Topps will have exclusivity on MLB logos and Club trademarks. News release here:What does this mean? Well according to the New York Daily news article, which you can read here, Upper Deck will no longer be able to use the red, white, and blue MLB logo. They will also not be able to show players with their team logos on their uniforms!!!! Does this mean the end of UD baseball cards as we know them?
This is very disappointing to me. I really love Upper Deck cards and do not want to see a bunch of airbrushed uniforms or hatless player cards.
What would some of the greatest Upper Deck cards from the last 20 years look like without the official logos????? Take a look........
Would you buy any of these no logo cards?????
