Welcome to the Topps 300 (and then some...) Blog!

Below are scans of the best five (in my opinion) cards from each year from the last 60 years of Topps Baseball Cards. I picked the 300 based on a few qualifiers, including: Key Rookie, Unique Photo, Action Shot, Card caused a buzz in the Hobby, Noteworthy Errors, Player had an impact on the game that particular year.

Now I know I left a whole bunch of worthy cards off the blog (and I have a feeling that I know what they are). What I ask is that you the readers that if you feel that a card not included in each post should be to add it to the comments. The idea is that eventually, I will create a ballot including my picks, as well as up to five picks from the commenters, will be put to a vote for the Hobby Blogging (and Internet) community to determine the best cards from each year of all time.

It is still a work in progress. But for now, please view each of the posts, and let me know what you think. And definitely share this with the populace. The more input this blog gets, the better the results are going to be in the end.

Thank you very much.

Can't agrue with these choices. Love the LL card of Clemente, Aaron and Mays.

I think everything but the Richie Allen is a must for this set. The Perry is the last card in the set in what is supposed to be a very difficult high series. The LL card is classic, probably the best of any of that type of subset. Palmer RC is a must, too, and the first Robinson card with the O's (66 was his triple crown year) is keym too. I'd go with the Sutton RC over the Allen. The Clemente card is pretty cool too.
