User Reviews

  1. Great concept, but somewhat disappointed with the Jeter set for two reasons: 1) quality of the scans is not great and 2) the 2006 card is not his Topps base card, but rather a blurry gold glove award card. Terrible oversight.

  2. I bought the Roberto Clemente version of this and I was let down by the quality. The 1958 had a patch of darker yellow on it, presumably from a poor quality scan. The 1964 Topps used had poor registration. I had assumed that they would use original negatives and artwork or some other archival source and rework these into the double size but instead it looks like they did cheap, low quality scans of whatever cards they had and blew them up and printed them.

  3. Very poor quality considering the price, every card was grainy or down right blurry in some instances.
