Yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinking. I've been bitching about how crappy Topps products have been all bloody year and then I blow money on Robin Hood?! Not even Errol Flynn but Kevin Costner??!? Well I did it because reasons.
Reason 1: lots of good supporting actors in there like Alan Rickman, Christian Slater, Brian Blessed and Mike McShane.
Reason 2: If it wasn't for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves there would never have been a Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Think about that.
Reason 3: You can actually get a complete set out of this product. (took 13 packs, check the Twitters)
And the biggest reason of all:
MORGAN FREEMAN ROOKIE CARD.
At least I think it's a Morgan Freeman rookie card. I have not yet found a Driving Miss Daisy set and sadly The Electric Company never got a trading card set. I wonder what set Rita Moreno's rookie card is in?
The set is on glossy Tiffany stock and was packed in plastic wrappers. The purist in me prefers my old Topps cards in wax wrappers but the see-through plastic helped me to cheat and find cards I needed to complete the set on the back. I probably would have had to rip three quarters of the box to build the set otherwise.
Also: Stickers! Does Bryce Harper have a rookie sticker? No, I don't think so! Stick it, Bryce!
Morgan Freeman > Bryce Harper.
