Topps 60 Best Cards...#36-38!

I really think that Topps is just throwing these out there whenever they want. Nothing appeared on Tuesday, and two days later, we now have three more cards making their way onto the big countdown.

Here are card #'s 36-38 "on Topps 60 Greatest Cards of All Time":
  • #38: 1985 Topps #536 Kirby Puckett
  • #37: 2001 Topps Traded & Rookies #T247 Albert Pujols
  • #36: 1960 Topps #148 Carl Yastrzemski
Thoughts: In what was a HUGE upset, the first Topps Pujols card (alright, not really the first Topps card of Pujols) makes the list at #37??? I would have thought that they voters would have ranked way way higher than this. The parade or rookie cards continues as sandwiching Pujols' rookie card are RC's of HOF's Puckett and Yastrzemski. The Topps Puckett card unfortunately, doesn't hold much in terms of RC demand because the Fleer and Donruss update cards came out the year before...as did the Clemens card quite frankly. The Yaz card, one of the few that Topps has used as an example of the 1960 Topps set over the years of reprints, makes its way here. I would have ranked it right about here, if the ballots had given me 60 votes.

Card #35 on the countdown will be announced tomorrow, or on the weekend, depending on when it shows up on the website.

Sincerely,

JayBee Anama

That Yaz card is very cool. I do think the Pujols should have been higher. I can't think of a card in 2000's that should be ahead of it. That damn Strasburg is gonna be in the top 10. How silly.
