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.

Hard to beat these cards - here's a few other suggestions. Yaz and Brock have card honoring their 3,000th hit - this is Brock's last card. Also, Ozzie's second year card was pretty good.

I've always liked the Lou Whitaker from this set.

The George Brett card is one of the best! This is the year he went on to hit .390 and win the MVP. The card just has a great vibe to it. Either way, I'd trade out the Steib card for any of these.

PS. I have opened a new eBay store if anyone is looking for some cool cards. (Just click the link in my name above)
