Hall of Famers and SPs
I don't mind collecting short print cards when it comes to building a team set. What I do have a problem with is when the short print is a hall of famer from decades past. Topps seems to have a tendency to put stars that haven't played the game in years......WHY?! If you're going to have short print cards in a set, make it of a current player on the team.....a rookie perhaps. Don't use a player that hasn't stepped onto the field more than two decades ago (2011 Tom Seaver SP) or three quarters of a century (2009 Update Christy Mathewson) for that matter. If you want to use them in specialty products like Allen and Ginter or Gypsy Queen fine, not in your standard product.
