Do you ever experience a dilemma when you're collecting sports cards? Ever come to a fork in the road and not sure if you should turn left or right? Recently I was struggling with a problem when it came to collecting the 2013 Topps set. I have always been a huge fan of the set because of the design and photos and I knew that I wanted to add the set to my collection, but I wasn't sure how to do it. Should I buy a factory set that had the 5 orange factory cards in hopes that one of those five would be a Votto that I need for my rainbow? I didn't like the odds of that, nor the price of around $50. I had always wanted a mini set and Topps did release wax boxes of their 2013 cards that are at a reasonable $30 on eBay. The problem with that is that there are 24 packs to a box with 10 cards to a pack. That's 240 cards to a box. With inserts, parallels, and possible printing plates and autographs that would leave me around 220-230 base cards a box, if I didn't pull any dupes. I would then need at least 3 wax boxes to try and collate the 660 card mini set which would set me back about $90...way to steep for me. While I'm sure I might have been able to pull something nice to recoup some of my costs, it was too much of a gamble for me. I've never been a pack gambler and never will be. This past week, while I was browsing eBay I noticed a listing for a complete set of 2013 Topps minis with an option to submit a best offer. Needless to say, I decided to submit an offer and was surprised to find out the seller accepted. For $34.99 shipped I was able to get my first Topps mini set and a set that I think is one of the ten best they've ever produced. What do you think? Did I make the right decision? How about you? Ever experience a dilemma is your collecting endeavors?
