Photo re-use, again

Just a quick post today.

2010 Topps Heritage #356 - Dan HarenThis is a nice picture but I'm sure I've seen it before. Oh, yea...

2009 Topps 206 #62 - Dan Haren
At least the background is a different color.

There's a few of those in Heritage. I'm quite sure I've seen the Harang photo before. ... one of the many disappointments of this year's Heritage.

I hate this more than anything else in this hobby. Seriously, more than anything. It's the epitome of lazy. How can they justify this?

I do a lot of shopping on COMC and see this quite a bit on the relic/auto cards, too. I don't like it one bit. But perhaps we're all the crazy ones for buying the products at all??? Why should they put forth effort when it doesn't matter??

I know of two other Heritage which has used photos from last year's Topps 206.

For this and other reasons I've decided to buy fewer new cards this year. With the demise of Upper Deck, I guess I was going to buy fewer cards anyway, but I'm planing to buy fewer of each release than I have in the past. And I'm planning to keep even fewer. I'll keep Phillies, Astros and the players I collect but most of the rest will be given or traded away.
