Boiled Down to Its Essence: 1995 Topps

Welcome to "Boiled Down to Its Essence," the first in a continuing series of card set retrospectives that cuts away the fat while addressing misconceptions of the casual collector. We debut with 1995 Topps.

At first glance, 1995 Topps looks like it's all about hovering to home plate...

...when in reality, it's about much more. 1995 Topps is really about super-close plays at first base...

...using cloning technology to pad stolen base stats...

...and having fun puttin' shit back where you got it from.

Nice posts! I've been slowly unveiling the "1992 Bowman Fashion Show" at my site. There were some NICE dressers in that set. It's pretty classic.
