Keeping with the recent trend, 2023 Topps Series 1 Baseball delivers a third consecutive year with a traditional border. Collectors will also likely appreciate that the names appear to be relatively easy to read. Many fans know that this is not always the case.

However, the nameplate gets an overhaul, packing a lot into the bottom portion of the card. The most obvious element here is the secondary portrait-style image, which has not been used since 2003.

  1. The design of the Topps Baseball 2023 series 1 are is a awesome card I love it. Do you know when the Topps Baseball 2023 coming to the stores in February.

  2. Design looks awesome! Love the player face and team logo, looks like an AB during a televised game. Best design in years!

  3. Absolutely best- looking card since 1995! Love that head shot at the bottom of the card, along with team emblem!
    I have been a collector since 1963 and this new design is one of my top 5 favorites!!

  4. I like the design and hope the backs are well done. Although not surprising it looks like Topps is holding back Adley Rutschman RC’s until the 2023 releases. A bit of a disappointment for the 2022 fall releases. However, the upcoming releases for 2022 should be outstanding with Julio Rodriguez, Bobby Witt, and a host of other strong rookies.

  5. Topps was due for its head shot action design, not bad at all.

  6. The large bird is off-putting, and the head shot is not deep enough to constitute a portrait.

  7. Nice..!! Something Bold and Different for a change. Head Portrait is really sharp! I assume that thin border will be color coordinated by team(?) 2023 Series 1 should be tremendous. Adley, Gunnar, Kyle Stowers, Michael Harris, Triston Casas, etc…who am I missing?

  8. Not bad. I wish the headshot and nameplate were a little smaller, but good design overall. I still love how clean the 2022 design is, so a little hard to compare, but much better than a lot of years. 2021-23 have been huge improvements.

  9. Outstanding. I have liked the recent designs but this is a lot different in a very good way. I like the small headshot. Love the large logo. Name easy to read and position is there. Its got it all. I always look forward to the new card reveal!!

  10. That is one ugly design.

    I will not be collecting it.

    The face should not be on the card.

    They already have a player image and a second one is not needed.

    The huge logo should be smaller.

    Heck the face is covering half the team name.

    What a waste.

    If I could give this negative stars I would.

  11. I like it! The last 2 or 3 years card design were very similar and kind of bland. This new design is very different and is very attention grabbing in my opinion.
