Most do and that's fine. But you can't buy a Babe Ruth bat knob for $500 and that type of gamble is what makes people break products like this.

You wont. You said you won't buy high end packs so it isn't a possibility.

None of us are believing that Topps put all real game used swatches from the player pictured in the relatively low priced Museum. Do you think that they saved the "real" game used jerseys for Five Star?

Case in point...Guess which of these came out of a box that prices out to $13/card and which one is $100/card??




Thanks Topps for being a model in maximizing efficiency by not having to pay anyone to dream up new designs.

The real funny thing is that the Museum Collection card is nicer looking.

Honestly, I don't think they care.

Enough people are buying whatever products they put out, it doesn't matter.

They see the money, and they assume you are pleased.

The only people they hear dissatisfaction from are the only 1% who will complain about everything anyways, so why should they change to please the 1%, when 99% of the zombies are still assumed to be happy.
