odds and ends
I have bought about 10 packs of Topps Series 1, which is probably all I will buy. I bought several team sets so I could have cards to send to those I don't have signatures of yet. I got this in one of my packs. It looks like it had been folded multiple times and left in someones wallet and sat on many times. I took it into the LCS and showed the owner, who has been in the same location since 1982, he said he would be embarrassed to even give that to someone, as would I. What does Topps think that collectors are so desperate for old cards that we don't care about the condition. Many of the cards I have seen on eBay are in the same condition. It's like they gave some one $100 and said this is your budget get as many cards as you can and we don't care about the condition.
