About 3 months back I posted a great looking short printed base parallel of Giants star catcher Buster Posey and posed the question in the title. I recently acquired another card that left me asking myself the same question:
Some have mentioned that it is price prohibitive for Topps to put great photos on every card. I wouldn't mind ditching some of the parallels and inserts that are currently in the flagship (do we really need Snow Camo parallels and eight different insert sets?) and spending a little extra on the photography. I am grateful that a couple Giants each year get the special SP treatment and I get treated to photos like this one.
