As we were cleaning out my man room, we were looking at old baseball cards and noticed two major differences between them. First of all, the pictures are less personal now than in the past. Here is an example:
Which one to you is more personable? Why not do the Spring Training closeup? Topps can get pictures of any player in the franchise uniform, keep photographers on staff, send them down to Spring Training and get shots of everyone. The only set that gets this right is . . . ironically, Topps Heritage, see below:
It really is just one thing that I think Topps needs to improve on. Maybe it would make collecting cards more personable. Next up I hate seeing team logos on the card to designate teams. I prefer the spelling out of the team name (like 1986 Topps above). I just think it gives a simpler tone to the card. I feel like there is too much flash on the card. It’s time to go simple.
What do you not like about the current card designs?
