Discussions like this are why the Topps complete picture collection books are likely my favorites in my library and most used. I have the 85' and 90 versions as well as the football.

Can never understand why these are so affordable so many years after issue and they are so massive you get a workout just thumbing thru, lol.

Chipper Jones 1991 boring. For me, this is by far the coolest card of 91 and one of the very few coolest cards of all time.
Oh, and an addition.

I definitely like that one Peter, but the 91 Clemens still is my favorite that year.

Anyone know what he meant when he referred to the sideways John Castino card in 1979? Not only was Casino's RC 1980 but there were no sideways cards in 1979 beyond team cards and the three-player rookie cards.

The writer honestly was not a collector nor really looked at the full sets. The article was based on google image search, so it was hackneyed as hell. Thus the reason the choices are so questionable and simply stolen from blogs.

Here is the fantasy Castino he found and thought was real as there was poor research done

That sucks. Aside from that article he is an outstanding sportswriter. His "The Soul of Baseball" is one of my faves. But yeah, pretty amateur look at 70s Topps!

Good observation there, Justin.

Well, at least (through his research) he got the '77 Topps card right with the Fidrych RC, possibly one of the best cards ever.
