2006 Topps Update & Highlights Set #UH1-UH330
The 2006 Topps Update & Highlights set was part of the first trio of sets to be labeled as such. Prior to 2005, Update and Highlights sets were only labeled as Traded sets, and were numbered ending in a "T" instead of starting with a "UH". Between 2005-2007, these Update sets were offered as a factory set. The problem with many of these Update factory sets were that they were often missing cards. I don't know how anyone could consider their base sets complete without adding these Update sets to their collection though. To me, they are the equivalent of high-series cards from the vintage sets of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. I guess if you ignore them, they don't exist, right? It's kind of like when I try to show my dog the hole she's dug--she looks everywhere else but right in front of her.
