User Reviews

  1. These look horrible. The parallel sets are awful. Corn on the card? Who comes up with these ideas? Count me out. Enough is enough.

  2. One of three or four sets left that I look forward to, but do we need to revisit the 2002 design already?

  3. 2002 Topps.

    All right. One of my favorite years.

    while 1976 Topps Traded Set highlights infamous trades in MLB history.

    Hopefully they really mean all of baseball history and not just 1976. If they do not have the babes trade then it will not be a true set of infamous trades.

    Tapping into the Field of Dreams game between the Yankees and White Sox is the 1989 Topps Corn Field Variation insert that adds corn stalks to the ’89 look.

    Maybe they will have pieces of real corn stalks added into cards. HAHAHAHAHA I would not put anything past them.

  4. Topps used white border background on there 1974 set, hopefully there not using red or team colors for background as part of this years archives. 1955 is classic. 2002 topps with gold looks good, one of the better looking sets they did. Topps threw a curve with 1974 considering 1974 archives will be 2023 heritage.
