Always an optimist...
My hope would be that Season 2 creates more interest in Season 1. If Rittenhouse doesn't repeat most of the cast autos from S1 in the S2 series it could inspire more master set type collections. With Rittenhouse adding wardrobe and sketches in S2, my guess is that autos would have to be lessened in the S2 product.
If they repeat most of the character autos it would hurt both series.

Guitars, fishing, and trading cards, safer than a lot of other habits. If I post a pic of a player, I took it. I may not be the oldest member here but I paid $8. an auto and shook Joe DiMaggio's hand at the Armenian Church in NYC once.
