Topps keeps me going. I don't keep buying it because I adore it. I buy it because it's Topps, and I want to find as many 'star cards' as possible, before collation basically curtails my quest. So these ten dollar boxes, while nice, are still a tiny bit disappointing to me. Because Topps does that now.
