A quick discussion question…

9 12 2008

Holiday shopping is over, and now it’s off to work for twelve hours.  Whoo boy.

Here’s the question (well, a statement, actually):  Topps should include as an insert (say 1:6) in their Update wax boxes cards from other Topps releases put out that  year to give collectors a sample of other sets and drive up interest in them.

For example, for the ’08 Update box, I’d have gotten a 2008 Heritage card, a 2008 Finest card, etc.  If inserts are a waste anyway, why not give collectors a chance to own some Topps Allen and Ginter and figure out if they want to collect it?   Further debate can be used for inserts from these sets being used as inserts for U & H as well.

Just a thought that popped in my head.  What do you guys think?

The idea is to simple and too good for the card companies to even consider.

Who wouldn’t like to have a bonus card from another set from the current year. Of course if it is a card of some washed up middle reliever that may discourage collecting the other set.

I think that’s a good idea. Let’s do it!

I think it should be a wrapped boxtopper in the U&H set. I may never buy a box of Finest or Bowman Chrome, but I wouldn’t mind having one card…to complete the ultimate sample book!

I don’t really like the idea. If I’m buying Updates & Highlights, I want Updates & Highlights cards… not Chrome or Finest or whatever else strikes Topps’ fancy.

The only way I’d go for it would be if the “insert” card replaced the Toppstown or David Wright filler cards instead of a real one.
