I'm not offended at all John. Thanks.

The last time I cleared a bar, I blamed it on gas.


We geniuses never expect to be appreciated during OUR lifetimes.

I always thought Topps made their cards bigger to compete with Bowman. After they bought Bowman out, they reduced the size to save money. 1956 cards were already designed, remember Bowman had prototypes for a 1956 set, so the change was made in 1957.

And while there was some moderate nostalgia for the Topps 1988 Big set, I think they had a hard time giving away the 89s

That sounds feasible. Does anyone reading this have any of the prototypes?

I'd love to see one. Please post 'em if you got 'em.
