Why did topps decide...

that it was good to make the Gold Parallel inserts 3x the thickness of the regular base cards? I would think that after buying one of the thicker packs that recieving a numbered insert is better than just base.

I'm not sure I understand your question. My guess is that it's easier to print 1 think card than 3 standard and your getting the end user a insert.

My bad

I wasn't really paying attention when I typed this I left out a lot of details. I bought a pack of 2010 Bowman Platinum at Target and the pack I bought was about two times as thick as the rest of the packs. I opened it expecting a decoy but saw a gold parallel of Johan Santana. This card was about as thick as 3 of the base cards so I was just pondering why they would make the gold so thick when you can tell the difference from the packaging of the retail packs.

Could it be a decoy card? A few years ago.....bowman or bowman chrome ....did use the decoy cards as inserts....and they were gold cards....One in every pack instead of the regular decoy card. Best regards, David

DPP Football always had those...same with some of the Bowman golds a couple years ago.

because they can

This was just one of many topics, quality control, that had people pondering when a monopoly was given to a manufacturer.

I know some bowman gold is thicker than their regular base cards, but I have never encounter any of the topps gold to be thicker than their base.
