Topps 2011 Chicago

  I recently completed that small trade I mentioned in a previous posting. Of note are two Topps 2011 White Sox cards. They are Paul Konerko #93, and Omar Vizquel #243.

  I have all of the Cubs from this set except for the two SP cards. (Banks #247b and Sandberg #405b) I really have an appreciation for this set's design. The arc across the bottom with the player's name is okay, but it would be even better if the player's jersey number was printed in the arc as well. The player's position printed underneath is a nice touch too, but the double ring with the team's name around the baseball with the team's logo in the center, that brings an added touch of class not normally seen on baseball cards in general. Plus, silver foil always looks nicer than gold foil to my eyes.

  So these two White Sox cards are the first Sox in my collection from the 2011 Topps set.



  1. 2011 was certainly one of Topps last nice designs. I like a white- bordered set...any set with borders at this point would be welcome.
