I like the Legends Variations in the recent editions of Topps. I think the 2010 Update variations of extinct teams are borderline genius. They are the Philly As, the B'Dodgers, the NY Giants, the StL Browns, Cleveland Naps, Senators and Boston Americans. Maybe some day they will an Expos card.
In 2010, Topps put out 62 Legends Variations. Most of them are kind of rehashes, the same players every year. Babe Ruth comes in pretty much every series. Not that I mind, but there are so many other ways to go, and without the shiny or uniform or Abe Lincoln gimmicks.
The Negro Leagues. How awesome would it be to pull a Satch Paige or a Josh Gibson? Or maybe a team shot of the Homestead Grays?
How awesome it be? It would be F#CKING AWESOME.
Get on it Topps, there is not reason not to. I would scoop those mothers up like candy.
Also, send me your Legends Variations.
