There ya go, the same two chrome prospects/WBCs showed up in the next packs as base cards.  Man Topps, couldn’t even kick in a refractor to make my butt hurt a little less?  Wasn’t expecting greatness, but apparently my expectations were too high since I didn’t expect stupidity.

I was very heavily considering a hobby box of this in the near future, because for once, I actually liked Bowman a lot this year… but I’m never going to buy so much as another pack of it ever again without a damn good explanation.  And this combined with the f***ed up patch from my Series 1 Topps blaster awhile back, I don’t think I’ll be getting any more Topps blasters of any kind for a helluva long time either.  And knowing Topps pulled this sort of crap with the National Prides, Baseball Highlights Sketches, and possibly the Hoodwinks in Allen & Ginter, I’m not even feeling buying anymore of THAT anytime soon, and A&G is my favorite set of the year.

Way to go Topps, another satisfied customer.

ARE YOU SERIOUSLY JOKING???

    Even worse Upper Deck is apparently gone as of next year and we’re stuck with Topps only going forward…
