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.

Good choices. Only suggestion would be to trade out Reggie for either Will Clark or Maddux traded. I think of those two as being more iconic, but that's just my opinion.

This is a tough set - I'd put alot of cards in here above anything in the 86 set. I think you have to include the Bo, Canseco, and Bonds. I'd actually exclude the Big Mac, too - I think his being in the 85 set lessens the iconic-ness of this one.

From there I'd include the Maddux 87 Traded, and card #1 - the Clemens recordbreaker for most strikeouts in a game.

Also - the Yogi Berra Astros TL card is very cool.
