2009 Topps vs Upper Deck

September 8, 2009

Today I will be comparing 2009 Topps series 2 and upper deck series 2. From the very beginning I have been faithful to upper deck, because in my mind they have been so much better, this may be because the only topps product I have ever opened is 10 dollars worth of topps retail series 2 packs. I would have to say the topps design is cheesy and trying to be simple and good while in reality it looks worse than previous years of topps flagship, the topps chrome looks like a good product and I will most likely be getting a box for christmas or next year during the topps exclusive, but as for topps series 2 I would say upper deck is far superior. The upper deck desing is magically simple with nice action shots and fun to open packs with scattered inserts and some decent game used jerseys and autos, topps has fine inserts but the etopps deal is bad, if they got rid of that and made it all legends of the game and ring of honor and stuff it would be better, the relics aren’t good and the relics need work.

Topps series 2 overall rating: C+

Upper Deck series 2 overall rating: B-

The Masterpieces review will be delayed for about a week because I just ordered another box along with some other little goodies from www.dacardworld.com. They have amazingly good priced boxes and they are very reputable, I buy all my boxes from them, please check them out if you haven’t already.
