Just Say No to Exclusives

Topps has announced today that the two most recent Heisman Trophy winners, Mark Ingram and Cam Newton, have signed contracts and will be autographing many cards for the full slate of 2011 Topps football products. One very promising note is that Topps also mentions “many on-card autographs” which isn’t completely void in Topps products, but is also no where near a standard.

Now, with any luck, these players will also sign autograph contracts with Panini so there are no stinkin’ exclusive deals which only hurt The Hobby, and ultimately the collector who now has fewer options for his personal collection.
