Completed Team Sets-2011 Topps

Here’s another flagship set (without the update)

team-11topps

This was probably my first flagship set I completed because 2011 was when I started this blog and therefore really started to collect again.

I completed this set the old school way.  Got the cards in packs and trading.  So I have a lot of you guys and gals to thank for it.

It’s not a horrible design, I always like the logo to be on the front along with the players name and they used action photo’s over head shots.  That’s probably the biggest plus but the newer cards generally use action shots over the head shots anymore.

I even have the Update set for the whole complete 2011 Topps set.  Like I said above, it was first year back and I bought a lot of cards.

  1. Seeing Manny in black makes me cringe. Just don't post the next completed team set having Canceso or I am pulling you from my daily reading. :)

    1. Canseco was way worse than Manny in my book. Come to think of it, out of all the thousands of White Sox cards I have, I'm not sure I have any Canseco's. Let's pray it stays that way.

  2. Haven't seen the Team Card from last year's set before. I really like when they incorporate the stadium into the team shot. Good looking card. Love the Vizquel card as well. As much as I love Paulie, it seems like it's been a while since I saw a good shot of him on a card. The Series 1 and the ASG card seem too similar and dull.

    Congrats on finishing the set!
