I just bought my first 2015 Topps base. So I guess that means its my turn to weigh in with my opinions.
But I'm just going to go over some thoughts I had while opening and sorting my cards.
First, they came in 36 card packs, but they weren't the long rack packs with 18 in each pocket. 36 in one pocket. I like it.
Did Topps double print this card? Seems like everyone is pulling it (not a scientific study). Granted, it's a fitting tribute to the retiring star. But I've never much of a Jeter fan. I'm the one who has been saying he's over-rated for 20 years. Then again, I guess I'm the one he's been proving wrong for 20 years.
I got 2 dupes. But this isn't exactly a gripe. Last year if I saw a dupe, the next 6-7 cards were also dupes. The fact I only got 2, and they weren't consecutive, gives me hope that the collation will be better this year. (C'mon Topps, you can do this)
and less of this. I love looking at the backs of cards and seeing rows and rows of minor league stats. I know absolutely nothing about Barnes' career, but I know all about Greene's.
And finally, look at the team logo. I know there's supposed to be circles around it. But that's not what I see there when I'm shuffling through the cards. Maybe I'm the only one who sees this, but those look like fingerprints to me. I'm calling 2015 the Fingerprint Set.
