The gimmick that ate Chicago

By now, I'm sure you've all heard of Topps' idea of a joke, the Abe Lincoln gimmick. They've inserted Abe into all the Cubs cards, somehow making it silly.

Why couldn't they just stop at the pies? You're already ripping the Yankees, and now you turn toward ChiCAGo? Plus, it's really friggin ridiculous. I mean, they've already made quite a few Abe cards already in Allen and Ginter, 2007 Turkey Red, various other products.

HOW DO THEY COME UP WITH THIS CRAP? Is there a Bad Idea Pottery Barn or something, is that where they all meet?

These gimmicks are getting ridiculous Topps. TAKE THE INDEPENDENCE SERIOUSLY!
