Topps again dusted off the old wooden boarder for this set. I'm not sure what the significance of this design is supposed to be. It doesn't look like the tight grain of the ash wood used in baseball bats. Maybe it's supposed to be the bench. Bowman put out a set in 1952 meant to look like a color TV, which was the novelty of the day. Perhaps this year they'll put out one that says "Blackberry" along the bottom.
That would be cool. Heh, heh.
Anyway, I have completed this once-standard 792 card set, but I have more doubles than Curtis Granderson. If you need any, well, you know the deal.
