HOBBY TOPIC

This series is all about you, the readers. My opinion is mum on every subject, however, you guys have the open mic per say on here. So without further ado, here is today' topic:

PARALLELS

Do you consider parallels being overdone? Do you want to see more? Should they all be numbered? Do you prefer none?

  1. I'm a big fan of parallels. They can be overdone though, one NBA set had 37 parallels! I like one-per-pack parallels with the chance for a rarer one available. I actually prefer parallels to inserts.

  2. I definitely think they can be (and frequently are) way overdone, but I typically enjoy parallels. It's kind of disappointing to me when a set comes out that has none. Always a fun boost to pull one in a pack, and I'm a big fan of chasing a rainbow every now and then - looks great all together in a binder or display! They don't all have to be numbered, but tougher ones should be. They should also be easily distinguishable from the base cards - the Score football glossy parallels of a few years ago were a huge pain, but 2016 Classics football actually labels them "glossy" in bronze foil on front, which I appreciate.

  3. I enjoy parallels in moderation. I enjoy different colored refractors the most I think. It's when they do a superfractor in every color too that makes me crazy. I will also add that I am not a big fan of insert parallels--keep them to the base set.

  5. Too many parallels for my liking. Give me two or three max and then cap it. Growing up in the 80s it possible to be a super collector of a player... yes, you had to chase odd balls, but that was fun. Chasing a rainbow can get get quite expensive and frustrating.
