Card of the Day: 2008 Topps Heritage Jon Smoltz

I'm taking a break from the forgotten collectibles of the late 1990s for a day to showcase the newest Topps variation that has collectors up in arms.

A Jon Smoltz card has been discovered in 2008 Topps Heritage as a very short printed variation. That being said, Heritage master set builders aren't happy. Many are frustrated that Topps puts in these rare variations to make their lives more difficult.

However, I don't follow their logic. The point of building sets is the chase last time I checked. The point of rare cards is to chase them. So why the uproar?
