I like Topps Archives. I liked the Bull Durham inserts they included in this year's product. And I like the concept of "buybacks" when done properly.
However... Topps recently combined these three things into one card when they inserted this card into their 2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary Edition boxes:
For those of you who aren't familiar with this card, it's a Bull Durham insert out of 2016 Topps Archives that happened to be released only six months ago.
Anyone else find it weird that Topps is now inserting "buybacks" of current issues?
Don't get me wrong... I'm not hating on "buybacks".
In fact, I've collected my fair share over the years and I'll continue to pick up affordable copies in the future. However... if I was running Topps, I'd change things up and require all future "buybacks" be a minimum of twenty-five years old. But that's just me.
What are your thoughts on Topps issuing 2016 cards as "buybacks" into 2016 products? Thumbs up? Thumbs down?
Looking forward to reading your responses. Happy Sunday and sayonara!
