A Fortnight of 2013 Topps: Day 8

...just when I think Topps has done something really great (Chasing History inserts), they go and blow it.

No, I'm not repeating my post from yesterday...these are the retail foil parallels of the Chasing History insert.  They serve absolutely no purpose.  Topps should have gone "either/or" with choice of stock, not "both".  It's tough enough to put together a nice insert set, but now there are two versions of the same one.  Sure, it's sort of like base chrome and refractors, but the foil just doesn't change the card that much.

Strangely, I ended up with two regular Big Hurts and two foil Big Hurts.
