  1. I’m an old-timer. I bought my first packs of cards in 1961. I’m set in my ways. But I love Heritage, because it brings back my youth.

    That said, do people really like all the silly insert cards that clog up most packs? New Age Performers, Flashbacks, Chrome cards, Black Borders, and especially, the so-called relics?

    In my opinion, these things are of no value to my collection. I would like nine cards in a pack, and none of the fillers.

    Am I alone in this?
