Everyone knows what high end products are. They're the non-retail mucho expensive boxes (which usually only contain a few packs) that people buy just for the game used. Topps Tribute is a good example. I'd have to break the bank just two afford a pack of that stuff, while most collectors dig in, just to see if they can get a good player (which, most of the time, they don't)
Let's say I had the cojones to get a pack of that stuff (Which will never happen, unless I win the lottery or become a world famous star). I open the pack, and my big hit is a player that I hate, like Carl Yastremzski (No idea how to spell it), or Fergie Jenkins, a guy who some thing should not be in the hall of fame. Then, that's 100 dollars down the crapper. But the slight possiblity that I get a Yankee (which isn't very slight, since sooooo many people retired with the Yankees and went to Cooperstown) would drive me to get the pack...and be let down when I see a game used to Don Sutton (Because I have to say something bad about a Dodger now that I've read this).
And people still buy the high end products, even though they know that there's a 1 in a million chance they'll get something good. And that is why I stick with the low end.
And if you bloggers know me by now, this is the part where I ask you some question that nobody answers. What's your take on high end? Do you hate it? Do you love it, even though at the end of the day nobody wants that Dom Mossi autograph?
By the way, this post is not meant to offend any big name bloggers, specifically Dodger fans, Boston fans and Fergie Jenkins' mother.
