I think part of the reason the country is in the economic shape it's in at the moment has a lot to do with the CEOs who run most major corporations never spent a day consuming the product they're now in charge of. Case in point.....the man named CEO of US Airways several years ago came from the same post at..........FREAKIN' BURGER KING!! Guy probably never spent a day taking flying lessons OR flipping burgers, and once he landed the gig at both companies, he probably flew private jets. Assuming he ever ate the food of the peasants like a hamburger, I'm sure it was prepared by a personal chef.
Regardless of how you feel about the direction of the sports card hobby at the moment, you have to feel good about the fact that the guy calling the shots at Topps is a guy who knows the product he's selling and marketing. That can only be a positive.
