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 like the Boggs card with the view looking up into the clouds. Also, the Mattingly was big because of the error version - only 10 hits the year before.

get chipper out of there. those cards that featured guys in high school and college uniforms were part of what turned me off to the hobby in the early 90s.

Excellent choices for 91. I was going to suggest Fisk and Santiago if you didn't have them in there already.

I love the cards you picked. I'd love to put the Boggs in, but don't have a card I'd pull from those 5. I strongly think leave the Chipper in - that's the RC of the 1st overall pick - was a big card back in the day.

The Sandberg card from '91 is one of my all-time favorites: Ryno with a solid swing with the catcher and ump both in the shot on a sunny day at Wrigley. Great work!
