Reason #423 Why Topps Moments & Milestones is a Joke.

Is this what Topps meant by "Added Value in Every Pack?"

Courtesy of the must-read Sports Collectors Daily:

"Topps is confirming that because of what it calls 'a manufacturing error' in the recently-released 2008 Topps Moments & Milestones Baseball, card numbers 145-189 feature more than one red parallel.

"By design, each of the Rookie Cards 145-189 should only have one Red Parallel (1 of 1), but because of the error the subjects have an additional 20 Red Parallels."

In other words, the only "true" ones-of-one in TM&M -- and the only ones-of-one that might actually be worth more than the price of a waxpack -- are actually 20s-of-one.

Congratulations, suckers!

Could this be why I haven't bought a new pack of cards in at least five years? Ding, ding, ding.

Why the hell does Topps continue to toy with Reds fans? They have yet to release a 2008 set that does not feature some screw up involving the Reds. And to think I actually purchased 2 of those Vottos thinking I had the only freekin one. Damn you Topps! Damn you!
