In our history of baseball cards piece, we discussed at length the history of the Topps baseball card company; from their initial entry with the 1951 Red and Blue Back sets to their acquisition of Bowman in 1956.
In this piece, we wanted to have a little fun and rank all of the Topps sets starting with the ’51 Blue/Red Back issue all the way to the 1980 Topps Baseball card set.
Now of course, we’ve noted that anything produced prior to 1980 is considered to be vintage, but we figured with this piece, we’d keep it to an even thirty years of Topps issues.
Our rankings are based on a few different factors:
1) Overall design of the set
2) Star and rookie card power in the set
3) Collector Demand
4) Investment Potential
I’m sure there will be some that collectors disagree with, so let us know in the comments what you think are the best Topps baseball card sets.
For now, we’ve provided full writeups on the best ten Topps sets of all time. At some point we might expand the writeups for all thirty Topps sets.Read More...
