2018 Topps

It's that time of year again! Topps has just released their 2018 flagship cards and, like I've done every year for the past 10 years, I've purchased my Reds team set off eBay. Hopefully by this time next week I should have the cards in hand. Just a couple of thoughts about this year's set. First, I still miss the borders on this set. I'll always believe that full bleed photography should be reserved for Stadium Club. Second, I think there's too much going on in the footer of the card. The color swoosh and pixel disintegration are just over the top for me. Photography is decent but I'm getting tired of chasing short print cards. It's just a pain trying to track these down every year. I feel sorry for those of you that have to track down those dreaded SUPER SHORT PRINTS! Anyway, on a much lighter note, at least baseball season is right around the corner!


  1. New follower here. I pulled that card in my hanger box and is a great shot, something I think they did step up this year.

    The Cubs have 5 SPs and 3 SSPs. Ugh

  2. After one day of seeing 2018 Topps posts... this card currently sits atop my favorite list.

    1. I agree Fuji. This is probably one of my most favorite cards Topps has released in quite some time. Bonus that it's a Reds player and icing on the cake that it's Billy.
