....200 cards in the base set, and only three Cubs. 200÷30=6.67 The Cubs got only half of their allotment. Boo!
...The cardboard is waaayyyy to flimsy. The originals were a much thicker, stronger stock. Boo!
...As always with these reprint type sets, Topps hasn't come up with an exact duplicate of the original. It's always very obvious to me that the cards don't match the originals and I can't stand the mismatch. Boo!
...two Cubs out of 41 in the All Time Fan Favorites is ok, and even better, one of the two is Bill Buckner! Yea!
...only one Cub out of 50 in the reprints. Boo!
...Still no Topps love for HOFer Ron Santo. He was included in all three years of the original All-Time Fan Favorites, so its not like Topps hasn't done him before. But I don't understand why they haven't included him in this or any other 2012 product yet. Boo!
That's five Boos and only one Yea. Not good.
Now the cards.
