,This is old news, and I recently read the deal is on the rocks. Nevertheless, I'm surprised more hasn't been made of this.
Upper Deck is seeking to buy Topps
What the mainstream media doesn't mention, because they have no clue, is that Upper Deck controls Upper Deck Entertainment and Topps controls WizKids.
If the deal goes through, Upper Deck will start to seriously rival Wizards of the Coast in the Hobby Game Industry. I don't think this is good or bad, just really interesting.
