2008 Topps Baseball

Went to Target Tuesday after work and to my horror they were sold out of Heritage. So I picked this up instead. A mini-blaster of '08 Topps series 1 marked half off. 50 cards for 5 bucks. And because I have very few series 1 cards from last year there's a good chance I need all of these (which I did) so that's cool.

I'm in the midst of a massive organization project and I've been seeing a lot of '08 Topps in my boxes. The more of it I see, the more I like it. I wish the photography was a little better, but the design is growing on me.

I wouldn't say I'm interested in completeing the set, but I'm starting to like it. Maybe in 20 years I'll get nostalgic for it.

I think I'm the only person who actually liked the '08 design. I don't know why everyone hated it.

My only real complaint with it was how tiny the photographs were because of the bump. Otherwise I like it. That bump could have been at the bottom, or done away with completely and it would have looked much better.

But I do like it. And since no one else likes it, boxes'll probably start showing up for $20 before too long. At $20 a box I wouldn't mind putting a set together.
