Baseball Cards Enter the 31st Century


null-640569223-1236708617Baseball cards used to be the coolest thing ever, of course, I was 8 at the time and little else going on…now I have wireless internet, so I’m gaining in the world!

Unfortunately, baseball cards have become a dwindling industry, going from being a billion dollar powerhouse to a $200 million pathetic hot mess. So, in an effort to spice up their fortunes, Topps is looking to completely revolutionize the way cards are looked at. Taking your new Topps cards and placing them in front of your computer’s webcam and the picture on the card will turn 3-D! Move the card and the player will rotate with you letting you see everything, even his rippling muscles!

Topps, owned now by former Disney chairman Michael Eisner is desperate to rekindle interest in their cards and are hoping that the “Total Immersion” technology will respark desire and collecting. I personally doubt that this will make any difference. Maybe if the cards did it on their own, but needing to bring them to the computer is simply too much effort for me. We’ll see I suppose…
