What would you do if you were in Topps shoes? I know I would do quite a few things. Here's just a few.
First off, I would totally revamp my customer service. Get better with getting more involved with the card collecting community. Panini is a perfect example of great customer service. They get their redemptions out on time, they get involved with the people in the hobby, and lastly they're super nice and listen to any complaint that somebody may have.
Now for the card products. Let's start with flagship first. I don't have much to say, but I would get rid of the foil for the names. It makes it look sleeker and the names easier to read.
Next, I would get rid of Allen & Ginter altogether. It seems like it's getting worse every year.
After this, I would bring back Topps Total. I think everybody would agree with this move. Topps Total needs come back if Topps wants to get kids to collect cards again. It's a great and cheap way to make baseball cards.
I think you can keep Triple Threads and Chrome. I would do this to keep the high enders and chomies happy as well. Also, their not that bad of sets.
If I were in Topps shoes the last thing I would do is quit all the dumb online exclusives and get rid of your MiLB products. If you have Bowman then you don't need the MiLB products. Also, the online exclusives just seem to make everybody aggravated because they aren't able to get those cards for a reasonable price.
One last thing I think I would do if I was Topps, is I would bring back Bazooka. I think that was a great set and that it would help immensely with getting kids back in the hobby.
In my opinion, these are just some of the moves Topps should make. I know all of you have even better ideas then I do, so let me hear them. I love hearing from you guys. Well, have a great time blogging everybody! :)
