I’m just not impressed with 2014 Topps Series 1. The more I learn about the endless variations and SPs and SSPs and sparkles and parallels, the more depressed I get. Well, since I won’t be opening any 2014 Topps Series 1, I felt the need to get a few cards to cheer me up.
I think it is safe to say that there’s not a single baseball card that will be released this year that will compare with any of these. All four great, even though they don’t have purple, or pink versions. All four great without little star sparkles on them.
I should also say, that although I’m not a fan of Series 1, the Jason Heyward card is all kinds of awesome. Topps still knows how to make a baseball card, they just don’t have any faith in the best cards in their product.
