I found some time this weekend to sort some of my cards. The cards I have here for the Zoo are now sorted by year, and the smaller sets that were just piled randomly in a box are sorted by set. I even made nice labeled dividers with index cards! I feel like the Martha Stewart of baseball card collecting. Not really.
Now that I have more free time, I can get back to the On Location cards, and devote more time to the other blog. I can also get around to some of the other content-based post ideas I've thought about but not had the time or inspiration to write, including this new series.
There are more than enough sites out there giving year-by-year in depth analyses of Topps products. I'm going to count down the ten sets of each decade from least-favorite to most-favorite design. Nothing but fun!
#7: 2006. Not too much improvement over the 2005 set, but there is a lack of repetition, and gone is the massive foil name over white space from 2004 and 2005. Speaking of 2004...
I didn't collect sets for half the decade, so I still need complete sets for 2001 and 2003, and traded sets for 2001-2004 and 2009.
