While I don't mind the occasional double, I definitely hope that Legends doesn't descend into multiple wrestlers with three and four cards representing various stages of their careers.
Largely, I agree with you. I wouldn't want a card for every face of Ed Leslie, for example. There are guys like Larry Z. or Masked Superstar with such clearly distinct periods in their career that I'm largely okay with it, because (at least in Larry's case) it's not as aesthetic a difference as say the difference between Dr. X and The Destroyer.
If we get alternate versions in TTHoF 4, I hope that 1) they're alternate versions for guys who weren't in the first three TTHoF sets, and 2) the gimmicks are more grounded in reality. I'd much prefer a white meat rookie tag specialist Nicky Bockwinkel (especially if papa Warren was one of the new names in the set) than tax accountant Mike Rotundo.

I tend to not LOVE alternate personality type cards but there are definitely going to be exceptions where I do like that we've gotten multiple cards. And I understand that just because I don't have a use for every single card released, doesn't mean that is the case for everyone. I probably won't use Adorable Adrian Adonis anytime soon but Grant most certainly will so I'm totally on board with cards like that getting release. And if including those types of cards in TNT sets here and there keeps the TNT set train coming, I'm 100% all for it.
