Most of what I have seen from 2011 Topps Series 1 I have liked. I personally haven't had any of the cards in my hand, but the majority of people who have seen the cards seem to be enjoying them as well.
Here is something I don't like. I normally don't like manufactured patch cards or anything that falls within that category. I understand why it's done. Card companies try to aim for something different. I like the idea of them taking chances because I think that's needed, but I don't like the concept of manufactured cards.
Well, then it leads to something like this (credit goes to Stale Gum for pointing these out on Twitter):
2011 Topps Series 1 Stephen Strasburg EXPOS manufactured patch (To the guy selling his for $40 ... good luck).
I know the Nationals used to be the Montreal Expos, but the boy wonder never played for the team. I don't like the 'what if' game. Not in real life. Not on my baseball cards either.
