I have to agree with this post. People will complain, but still bend over and take it from Topps in the end. (no pun intended...teehee) Come release time people will be buying cases and going on about how great the cards look. Total 180! The only way to get the message that GPK collectors don't want anymore of this is to quit buying it. Don't complain about it and then buy a case. Topps is ultimately a business and they are out to make money, not make individual collectors happy. If it sells, they will make it.
As a true collector of GPK to have at least all the base sets that come out, this is a slap in the face from Topps, They need to put all that energy into one set per 6 months or so. That's why some still buy if it clarifies it at all. In my mind peoples spending habits is their own business, not for others to intrude on. It doesn't have to be all or nuthin, This would be the place for people to vent, if you don't like reading the vent posts don't read them.
MIKE I am just as irritated with Topps as you or anyone else is. I understand the need to vent BUT I do get tired of reading people crying about Topps' cash grabs and then falling for them over and over again! Collecting GPK is supposed to be fun. What happened to that? Why collect if it causes a person so much misery? I quit collecting all the new releases specifically because you have to be rich just to keep up. I am not loaded and have no desire to keep up with the Joneses' cause Topps says so. I am much happier collecting OS and just picking up weird subsets here and there. No more being a completest for me! Btw I actually do like this set.
