Is it something that comes out every year, like a flagship set? Is it a retro set like Heritage or Allen & Ginter? Maybe you're hoping for Topps to put out something completely new and not based on a retro set.
Things have really changed since Topps got the baseball exclusive. If the exclusive deal means I get fewer choices, but they choices have top-notch designs and great photography (or art) then I'm fine with it. If not....well, I'd rather have more to choose from and pick and choose what I want.
Let's look at this from another angle. Perhaps you aren't looking forward to anything that is scheduled for release in 2010.
Do you have a favorite release from the past 10 years? I've been seeing more and more boxes from 2000-2009 busted on the blogs than ever. Sometimes I wonder how many more cases of Masterpieces there can be with all the boxes I've seen opened recently. Go to one of the numerous on-line sources or support your local shop, but buy something that get's you excited. I'm talking about cards here. If nothing new gets the collector in you fired up, then find one of those boxes from years past and bust it open. There must be SOMETHING out there you liked or you would have dropped out of the hobby long ago. I love vintage cards, but there's nothing like ripping wax (or cello or foil, whatever they're packing cards in these days). Unless you're saving your hobby dollars for a shopping sprees ala the latest Blog Bat Around, you should be able to find something that renews your hobby energy. Go for it....and blog about it! We all want to know what you find.
