As for the switch to vintage lately, I've noticed it big time. There were very few gimmicks like with today's cards. You can pick up a nice vintage star card for the same price as a pack of today's cards in which you might not get anything (that includes GU, sticker autos, diamonds, redemptions, etc). Topps has went quickly downhill and lacks any imagination or creativity. People can keep on throwing their money at them looking for a "hit". I'll just throw my money at a sure thing.
