Topps goes back to the retro well once again, but this time it works.

Similar to baseball the set features current dudes on older designs. What I like here is that it isn’t heritage old it’s ’80s old, the sets me and my peers remember form our youth.

Base sets are fine and good but let’s be honest it’s all about hits and inserts.

Topps also showed some autos.

Very retro.

I love the 1988 design, it is one of my favorites alll time. I hope it’s part of the basse set as well.

I likes what I see.

I am sure I will pick up a box.
