About a year ago the first images of 2011 Lineage hit the scene. It looked awesome, basically a return of fan Favorites. When it finally hit the streets it was a bit of a let down. The ’75 mini insert set was cool but it wasn’t what we were hopping it would be.
I loved Fan Favorites. I bought a mess of ’04 and ’05. I built sets of each and have a nice collection of autos. One of the best autos sets all time. Two cards in particular caught my eye.
I have written about my love of Griffey’s ’89 traded rookie so I am very pleased to see Topps invoke that here.
