Me too. Why just Panini?
I am guessing because Panini may have a MLB license soon beyond the one they have now
I can see the meeting now.

Topps : Please give Panini baseball rights!

MLB: Huh? You want competition?

Topps: Did you see Panini make football? Their products made our stuff look awesome.
Anyone remember back in the old days, that Topps sued Fleer because they wanted to put gum in their packs. Fleer lost ! They tried marbles and even cookies in their packs. yucky.gif Topps thought It was all about the gum ! laugh.gif

Or, I'm I just showing my age ? cool.gif
