Another baseball card season is about to kick off with the release of the flagship Topps Series 1 on February 3rd. Topps has been the main brand since 1951 and now is joined by numerous off-shoots of Topps that include Bowman, Topps Heritage, and Gypsy Queen to name a few.
Topps once again will break the traditional set in to 3 series, which include Series 1, Series 2 (released 6/15), and an Update Series that is released in October. The look once again revolutionizes the brand after last years popular design by forgoing borders for full bleed player photos for the first time in the history of the brand (here is the evolution of the design over the years). I was a fan of last years move away from the stale white borders and looks like I’ll be a fan of 2016 with a design that looks more like the Stadium Club cards than the traditional Topps release.
