I think we've all become accustomed to the Target and Walmart exclusive parallels. Red, blue, black...whatever it is, Topps has worked out a way to create even more cards to chase by making retailer-specific cards. More cards = more money. I get it.
One thing I don't understand is why certain products only show up at certain stores. I know of two for sure.
Topps Olympic cards have only been showing up at Target stores in my area. It's not that I want to buy any more Olympic cards, but I don't know why they never had them at Walmart.
Panini Triple Play cards also haven't shown up at any of the Walmarts in my area. The packs I bought the other day came from a Target that I shop at infrequently.
I'm not trying to make a big deal out of Olympic or Triple Play cards, but I only go to Target about twice a year so I want equal opportunity for retail cards at Walmart.
I'm not endorsing Walmart because I'd like nothing more than to never give them another dollar, but that's not really an option around here.
Anyone have any idea why some products are only available in certain locations?
