Million Dollar Question – Which Do You Prefer: Topps’ Emerald Foil OR Ruby Foil?
With the launch of the 2014 Topps Series 1 baseball card set last week, we all got a taste of the first new product for 2014.
Personally, I really like the cards. The image selection (on most) is strong, and the graphics are complementary to the image while not being or taking away from the main attraction – the photo.
With this new set comes a new version to a common Topps theme – a colored parallel.
In 2013, we had the Emerald Foil Parallel as seen here:
And now, in 2014, we have the Ruby Foil card:
This got me to wondering which one was better – better to look at, better baseball color, etc. It also got me to wondering if my opinion was in the majority or the minority.
So, I now pose that question to you: Which Do You Prefer: Topps’ Emerald Foil OR Ruby Foil?
For me, I will go with the Ruby Foil. Throughout the year last year, I always thought that the Emerald was a bit too dark and which ultimately made the images on the cards appear quite a bit darker. The Ruby (so far) looks and feels lighter. And I also think the Ruby-Red color is a better baseball fit as Red is a commonly shared color among many of MLB’s teams.
My choice is Ruby!!
And now it if your turn to choose. Which Do You Prefer: Topps’ Emerald Foil OR Ruby Foil?
