The Generation NOW Set Has Returned...But Guess Who's Using It???

As we head into summer, and the kids get out of school, is it too early to discuss traded sets? While it's probably way to early to even think about a traded set (I'll probably start thinking about it after the All-Star break...unless the sell sheets for Topps' Updates and Highlights set comes sooner), the people at the other company have already announced their plans (thanks to the number one source of the hobby for the tip).

Along with the usual base set, they are going to include an insert set called...get this...Generation NOW.


Didn't Topps already use Generation NOW as a theme just a couple of years ago? And now UD is going to use it as an insert set in their Update set?

I'm sure Topps will be laughing at the effort from the competition, (I don't think they can sue...even if they wanted to, it's a safe bet they won't), only because they drove the concept to ground with that 535+ card behemoth of an insert set in 2007 (the 54 card K-Mart set, on the other hand, was awesome and probably what UD is going for here).

Then again, you'd think there would be at least an ounce of originality coming out of the company in California. Oh well...

Hobbies plays a key role for the people who really came to the earth for this purpose, one or the other day people around the world would be discussing about the people who have collected Many World Coins,monuments, old stamps, old notes who will be positioned in the world of Guinness records.
