Just When I Thought I Was Out– Top Topps Pulled Me Back In!

Reader Jason thinks he can top Topps. It's nice, though reminiscent of Fleer Excel circa 1992.

"I've been playing around with ideas for baseball card designs for a while now. I would have to say that my inspiration for these comes from the Topps cards of the 70's and 80's, before computers brought about the endless gradients, drop shadows, layers, and other distractions. I would love to see Topps get back to where they once were, design-wise, without having to resort to another 'heritage' set."

Hey you! Send me your baseball card designs. I'm not picky.

First thought: this is the best card design I've seen yet.

Second thought: my only concern would be that the team and player names might be squished and hard to read.

Overall, though, this is my favorite so far. Very simple, but very good.
