This was the set that turned me away from Topps baseball cards. After completing every Topps+Traded/Update set from 1968-present, including the majority of all the sets from 1951-1967, I became fed up with the direction of modern baseball cards. The incomplete statistics on the back marked a 2nd year in a row, indicating that Topps didn't learn their lesson about respecting the longevity of a player's career. It marks almost 10 years since managers/coaches were removed from base sets, which could have included former players like Don Mattingly, Ryne Sandberg, Paul Molitor, Terry Francona, Bud Black, Ron Gardenhire, A.J. Hinch, Ned Yost, Mike Scioscia, Craig Counsell, Aaron Boone, Clint Hurdle, Bruce Bochy, Mike Matheny, and Dave Martinez. If age and longevity are no longer a valued part of Topps baseball, then there's no place for a middle-aged fogey like me neither. I've been selling off all of my modern sets in reverse chronological order beginning with 2018.
