2013 Topps to eschew the all white borders
This seems to be the early indication for 2013. Since 2008, the Topps baseball cards sets have had all white borders and that has been the case every year since 2004 (except for 2007). However, this does not necessarily mean the borders will be an entirely a different color from white. The card border design may be like the 1963 or 1986 Topps sets where part of the borders were white and part of the borders were a different color. These is a possibilty of a sort of a blended design where the non white borders will be faded into parts of the borders that are white. It seems Topps maybe going for a little more flashy design as a way to combat any loss of market share to Panini baseball cards.
