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…
