George Brett 1981 Topps – 1980 A.L. Championships

George Brett 1981 Topps – 1980 A.L. Championships

I love what Topps was trying to do with this baseball card, but the execution just didn’t really work that well…  at least for this collector.

Have a look:



When I think of cards that celebrate team achievements, especially winning, I like to see something a little more celebratory than what this card from the 1981 Topps set is offering.

Show me a few players hugging.  Show me a bunch of players crowding the plate waiting for a winning run to score.  Show me a gaggle of guys in the dugout getting ready to party.

And while I appreciate that Topps chose to showcase George Brett with this card, they could have chosen a better image of him to use…
