If you recall, every pack of 2008 Topps Heritage High Numbers included two cards of 2008 Topps Updates and Highlights, a completely separate product that really had no reason to be included with HHN unless they wanted to make it even more challenging (or make more money...you decide). Meaning that if you didn't collect the regular Topps set, and just worked on the Heritage set, you were going to be inundated with cards that you don't need (albeit two per pack), thus making it harder to complete your intended set (possibly not being able to complete ther 250 card Heritage set in one box).
Guess what Topps has decided to do with this year's Heritage High Numbers??? You guessed it...add two cards of 2009 Topps Updates and Highlights in every pack. AGAIN!!!
While the sell sheets are coming soon, I just have to ask...
To collectors of Topps Heritage (and I know you're out there), I just want your opinions and answers to a couple of questions:
- Are you happy that Topps has begun creating an update set for it's Heritage line? Give a couple of reasons why or why not.
- Are you happy that Topps is inserting two cards from 2009 Topps U & H? Give some reasons why either way. Is it really a good idea to add U & H cards to the HHN product?
- Am I overreacting? I mean, I'm not even going after the set, but I feel sorry for those who will.
