So i go to my favorite card shop the other day thinking I might buy some of his single Heritage to start filling in holes in my set or maybe buy another box. When I get there I notice his price has gone up to 90 bucks a box!! Holy crap. It's not that much more expensive then the other big card shop in town but wow and blow out has them for 82. I had sticker shock. Not because the price was so high, but it was so high for kinda a crapy box of cards. I'm not saying the set isn't nice, but the inserts and hits aren't all that great. I did end up buying one box earlier in the month after I bought my blaster for the Cardboard Junkies fantasy league. I've already put one Topps Series 1 set together and am about 20 to 30 cards shy of another, so I thought maybe I'd give Heritage a try. The owner of the card shop was totally cool and pointed out if I was just in it for the set I might as well just buy blasters from wally world or target, and he was right. So I didn't end up buying a box of Heritage, I ended up buying his last sealed box of 206 which was still 90 bucks or so but I did get some nice hits I'll post the break later with pics.
So know we get to the point of my post. I'm feeling hollow. I don't know what I want to do. I'm starting to see the reality of this Topps exclusive MLB deal. I'm even contemplating trying to put together a UD set of the "illegal card" which are still everywhere. I'm bored there isn't anything I want to buy, no packs to try, boring. I don't want to put together a Pro Debut set. I'm jonesing man!! I guess I can wait for Series 2 to hit next month but man this sucks. It makes me wonder what the football card landscape will look like this year. If I had a million dollars I might even try to put a Champs hockey set together. I really like the looks of these cards but it's the same problems with Goodwin Champions. Expensive and not a lot of cards. Although I do like the mini's. Especially the oddballs. Love me them dinosaurs. Anywho. My point is I look at this years baseball rack and the cupboard is almost bare. it was funny looking at the shelf in the card shop and seeing 3 boxes of Heritage left one open for packs, 1 open box of topps series 1 regular and 1 Jumbo and that was it for this year's stuff, he still had some of last years stuff. ung. Well I better get back to work. Keep up the good work everybody.
