I had bought two blasters packs of Topps 2009 series 1 awhile back. What I did not know at time though, was that Wal-Mart was doing a special black boarded card set.
Newbie me thought that was how they where all supposed to look. At least that is, until today, when I bought two retail packs of series 2 cards. They had white borders. Then I got to looking at other card blogs. They had series 1 cards with white borders. SEEEEEE!
I don’t really have that much of a problem with them really. The border looks fine and all, I’m just funny about wanting sets to look the same. I just wish I would have known about the special black borders before hand. So many different stores/etc seem to have various things going on with cards. Like the 2009 set with Traget retro and the Wal-mart black borders.
What do you all think of such sets having different varations? Do you just combine the cards to make one set (like some from Target and others from wal-mart, etc) Or do you stick to one? (all black border cards)
