Who Needs Heritage? I've got Sports Illustrated!

Apparently, the blogging world went ape crazy over the fact that Topps decided it was a good idea to charge $100 for a box full of 100 Heritage cards.  I agree that Topps made a bad choice...but really, from Topps perspective if they sell out of the boxes (only 1,000 boxes total), then it's hard to argue that the company screwed up.  Even so, I think I'll stick with my forgotten packs for now...

1999 Fleer Sports Illustrated:
Pack 5: 
19.  Tom Glavine & Roger Clemens

27.  Chris Hoiles
30.  Kerry Wood
127.  Frank Thomas

147.  Mike Mussina
150.  Javy Lopez

It must be said:  the Thomas card is pretty much a perfect baseball card!

Pack 6:
10.  Ken Griffey Jr. & Mark McGwire
13.  Rickey Henderson & Tony Womack
135.  Tino Martinez
141.  Chuck Knoblauch
8 of 25 HL.  Headliners:  Cal Ripken Jr.

1 of 13 FF.  Fabulous 40s:  Mark McGwire

Our second (and then third) inserts of the box.  The Fabulous 40's are seeded 1:20 packs making them a fairly tough pull (about one-per-box).

If they sell out, they might look at it as a success- until they realize they've lost a segment of their consumers (set builders) due to their constant gimmicks.
