Topps has an exclusive license with MLB, and the company could have gone different routes.
First, Topps could have completely dropped the ball and not put out a quality product because, technically, there is no competition.
OR ... Topps can better year to year and create product where people think "MLB did the right thing."
OR ... Topps didn't go either way. It (cliche alert) didn't step up their game, but they didn't completely bomb either on its flagship product.
What do you think?
By the way, if you haven't seen bdj610's Baseball Card Blog, go check it out. He's compiling a list of SP variations from 2010 Topps. At last check, there were 15 variations, which some have been submitted from others around the blogosphere.
Consider it Topps Stealth Variation Central.
So if you know of anymore, let him know.
