Why Topps, Why????

Do you tease me with such a great card?

So, this is a bit of a silly post, but while at Target recently I saw a 2008 Topps Heritage Pack in one of the value packs and it reminded me of my reaction when I realized that the Evan Longoria card they show on the wrappers and box, are vastly different from the actual card.

Here is an example:


Actual Card

I remember buying three blasters before final scoring the Longoria card and man, was I thrown through a loop. I looked at my box and then the card, then the box, then the card. You get the point, I was dumbfounded. Then I hopped on the computer to see if I got a variant. Nope, I got the actual card, but I want the card that is on the box. Still do, so why Topps, why????

Now I think Topps used this pose in 09 Bowman but not the exact photo or angle as the box art, you be the judge.
