Admittedly some of the cards do have appeal and I do like that the cards all include a write up on the back of the card. Seeing a couple icons like Orwell, Lennon and Cobain put a smile on my face.
While others are just dismal, I understand certain points in American history are important but does Zip Codes, Sony Walkman and New Coke really have a place on a card?
As expected every pack included a parallel or insert. I pulled two foil parallels- Barbie and Michael Phelps.
Two Fads & Fashions- Zoot Suits and Tickle Me Elmo
A Hirsute History card with a douchebag looking at me like I just deleted the newest episode of Jersey Shores off of his DVR. I find it sad that Topps even states on the back of the card that the hair style made famous by Julius Caesar and more recently by George Clooney would use a picture of this guy instead of either Caesar or Clooney.
The only insert that I actually like is the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Pulling Marilyn Monroe, Buster Keaton and Houdini sealed the deal as my favorite insert by far.
I was surprised by pulling an American Pie Relic, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. I have never seen Dancing With The Stars so I had no idea who he was without reading the back but it says that he was most recently paired with Hope Solo, whom I would have much rather have pulled as a relic.
