Are Ltd editions a rip-off?

Personally, I see Limiteds as part of the set so I will spend money to complete them. However if you dont to spend lots of money then simply complete the base, star players, motms and HCs. And dont regard the limiteds as part of the set. I feel the limiteds are what make the set fun to collect.

Thanks, all some very interesting comments and as with most things everyones opinion is valid. I suspect however that some of you are not seeing this from the perspective of a nine year old boy (my son and all his mates) who as many kids have no chance of completing the collection because they do not have the money to buy a whole box(!) or pay silly prices on ebay. They see Topps marketing the LE's through kids magazines MOTD but are not in a position to get these cards. At least with 100 clubs etc there is a chance of getting one in a pack which is how kids buy the cards.

I think the current LE marketing and supply with the the euro's has got out of hand with so many tie in deals a cynical ploy by Topps to get as much money for what is essentially a kids hobby, same goes for those flogging them for exorbitant prices on eBay. Kids don't also collect them to make money on in the future, they do it because they love football and love collecting. It's pity that you can't collect all the LE's but just neeed access to pots of cash. Where's the moral in that?
You would have to be a pretty poor kid not to be able to afford a copy of MOTD magazine!

And I dont think it is at all a plot to make money. Having spent time with some Topps employees, you can tell that they do like the cards and do like to hear from collectors, that is partly why there are very few LEs for the normal MA set.

I was talking about the likes of hart, young, Cole plus all the signed limited editions which are ties in with only certain retailers. Plus the likes of Johnson and downing, walkout) le have to be bought with 10 packs of cards minimum. (hmm think about that) Only one LE lampard came with motd magazine and plus gerrard (2 weeks)
TBH, if you go to a shop like smiths and buy some packs, you have got the same chance of getting an LE as u have a HC. In regards to the Downing, Johnson and Walcott LEs, I dont see the problem, if you were to buy say 5 packs a week, then all you have to do is wait a week and buy a multi-pack. I would say that those 3 were some of the easiest and most cost effective ones to obtain.

As for the signed cards, I dont regard those as part of the set, but if I am lucky enough to get one, its a huge bonus.
