It's time for Topps Stickers again. I wasn't too kind to this product last year and I was determined to be a bit more positive this year. But...
First off, some good points. I like the design this year. In fact my biggest complaint from last year, that the banner at the bottom of the card was too too large, was addressed.
There are fewer cards in the set this year, only 301 vs. 350 last year. They look to have done away with the puzzle cards which, in my opinion, is a good thing.
There are 10 cards per team, including a logo card. The extra card is #1, a Topps logo card. There is a retired player featured for most teams. Some retired players are good. It helps keep an old guy like me interested.
Each team's mascot is featured.
I presume there are rookie logo cards but I didn't get one in the 5 packs I bought. As usual the team logo cards come 2 to a card.
My local Target had the sticker albums this year, which I don't remember seeing in past years. The album cost $2 but Target was selling them for $1. The album is nice and I can see how kids might enjoy putting the stickers in the album.
I think the set might be hard to complete. At 8 stickers per pack and $1/pack you'd need almost 40 packs to complete the set. Since you won't get unique cards in each pack (although in 5 packs I didn't get any dups) it'd probably cost more like $80 to complete. The logo cards might be hard to complete as I only got one in 5 packs.
