Something about my title just doesn't seem right. I've been begging Topps to release info on Heritage but at this point they are tight lipped. The only thing that I know for certain is that Keith Olbermann has a Topps Heritage autograph card. This will be the first time that Topps Heritage has featured a non-baseball card in their Real One lineup. To me, I'm disappointed in this. Don't get me wrong, I respect Keith as a card collector and have sold him cards on several occasions, but the fact that Heritage is including KO in its lineup opens the door for other non-baseball autographs to enter the fray. Who's next? Mike Tyson? Burt Reynolds? C'mon Topps -- we already have Allen & Ginter. Don't mess with our Heritage!
It looks like I'm not the only one that feels this way. Here's a quote from a fellow collector...
If I receive an Olbermann auto, it will ruin my entire box break. It will be almost as bad as getting a redemption card now from a 2001-2012 box break. From the few clips I've seen, I find his humor banal, and his statements rife with error. This is ridiculous!!! Go after HOF or more current stars. Stick with baseball. If I want to collect the idiotic, then I'd go after Garbage Pail Kids or something like that. Topps can keep their Gilligan's Island, Beatles & Jack A$$e$! Keep Heritage REAL and Relevant to baseball set collectors. Give me piece of baseball history, not the hysterical.
I'd be interested to know what others think so please let me know!
