The Sklar Brothers On Topps?

Thanks to reader Brian for this article published by the Riverfront Times. Looks like the Sklar brothers have taken on Topps to produce some webisodes a la "the Office," that showcase two brothers who take over a baseball card company.

The interview is posted at the link above and I think that the only thing that could come from this is some funny lines from the brothers. Topps seems to think it will give them presence on the web, but when your redemptions are still done through the mail, you got problems.

Lets face it, Topps, you are an old gentleman in a young man's industry. I think it would be better if you focused on making better products than spending time focusing on this. Just an idea to throw around the real office.


  1. The sklar brothers are fantastic and a perfect fit with Topps. As a brand name Topps comes off as less stuffy than Upper Deck so it makes sense.

  2. Topps redeptions are online now by the way Gellman.
