WOW! This set sounds amazing. Pays homage to so many sets yet offers so much to so many different collectors.
Too bad I just made the entire thing up. But I would TOTALLY collect this. Discuss. Maybe if this gets passed around the internet enough it will inspire Topps to finally come out with a great set!
