Topps has released the design for the 2010 Topps Baseball Cards today!
All I have to say is...WOW!!! This looks fantastic!!! Normally there tends to be a letdown between a great looking card design one year and what comes out the following year.
Not this time. Not in 2010!!!
I know the picture may be big (won't know until I see how it looks on the blog later...), but the team name logo takes center stage (well, lower left corner stage) here. Could this be a dig by Topps due to the competition not being able to use team names anymore??? The team colors also look to make life easy for those sorting cards (can't imagine all 660 cards with that shade of red). The design is a little reminiscent to 1994 Topps and their home plate design, but this is definitely less boxy than 94.
The U & H set hasn't come out yet, and I'm already going nuts with this design!!! Too bad Series 1 won't be coming out until February. This is something to look forward to in 2010. I'm excited.
