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.

I think in 1974, any one of the Washington Natl cards should be included and either the Glenn Beckert Padres card or Jerry Morales Cubs card

I'd include one of the Hank Aaron Special cards, mostly for sentimental reasons.

Pull the Frank Rob, put in the Willie McCovey Nationals...

I'd rather have Willie's final BASE card--the '73--make the cut there than this subset '74. Just sayin'. You want a '74 Met? Stork Theodore. But, seriously, you should have one of the Wsh Nationals cards. Topps saw the future, they just had the wrong expansion franchise moving and too soon.
