If Topps Decided To Bring Back Their ‘Super Veterans’ Subset In 2013 For the 30th Anniversary, Who Should Be On The Checklist??
The Super Veterans set that was part of the 1983 Topps baseball card set is my favorite in-set subset of all-time.
It was the first subset that I built when returning to the hobby a few years ago, and I think that it can hold up when compared to any/all in-set subsets issued during the 1980’s.
2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the ‘Super Veterans’ set and nothing would make this collector happier than to see Topps pay homage to their roots and give us another version of the same set. Maybe in their base set? Maybe in Archives? Either way, I would love to see it done.
Now, that opens up the question of who belongs in the set.

To keep it open to as many opinions as possible, but to limit the number of cards in the set, let’s say for argument’s sake that the set is to contain 20 players.
Sound good to you??
Great!! I’ll start the checklist by adding two players: Jim Thome and Mariano Rivera.
Who else should be added? Let me hear it!!
