I'm Very Annoyed At Topps!

I'm Very Annoyed At Topps!
Uggghhh .... OK, here's the deal.

I have stated on here before that I am against companies with monopolies (i.e. Topps) jacking around with stuff like unnecessary short prints just to gouge collectors ... such as the Bryce Harper RC out of Series 2 earlier this year.

Beautiful card, right? Yep, and the auto version is even sweeter ... but I refuse(d) to spends hundreds/thousands on wax to pull one, or to plunk down $200-250 to buy a single.

So, like with Strasburg a couple of years ago — coincidence? — I decided to wait for the Update set to come out to pull his "rookie card" out of a pack, the old-fashioned way ... without going broke!

I've eagerly anticipated the release of 2012 Update, and it just came out today.

With the same freaking photo they used for his Platinum RC!

He hasn't played enough games that they couldn't come up with a new photo, or one at least as cool as his short-print RC photo?

I mean, it's just my opinion, but he kind of looks like a grade-schooler playing hopscotch to first base in the Platinum/Update photo.

And now, it's my only choice for a basic Topps RC that I can pull without going broke.

Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ... can't see myself buying one pack, much less a blaster.
