Excellent View of all Topps Baseball Cards Presented Yearly of each cards front face reduced to approx. 20% of the actual size on nice premium glosy thick paper. Hoping that someday maybe the size (larger) and back side of each card can be made in the same format. For now the next best thing to actually owning the entire collection which (Depending of course on condtion) could cost approx. half million dollars. An excellent gift for any baseball card fan of years gone by to re-live there child-hood memories in this massive volume weighting more than 10-lbs.

This book shows the front side of every Topps baseball card that was created from their inception in 1951 through 1990, when the book was published. It also includes the "Traded Series" for those players drafted or traded during said year. Each year has a section of what happened in the season during said year, and has a quiz. The quiz asks a question, and the answer is told in the form of a number, which correlates to a specific players card number for that year. This book is a joy to have, especially at looking into the past and seeing the players of yesteryear. The book is heavy, as it is almost 11 pounds, but it is well worth it!

very good. fast service. get to see my favorite baseball payers from the 1950's thru the 1980's. very great book.

Nice book, glad I purchased itI wish each card had the back with it as wellBOOK ITSELF IS A 4 STAR; it would be a 5 if it had the backs of the cardsOverall purchase only 3 stars because previous owner must have smoked and it is hard to get rid of that odorI keep it in a large ziploc type bagIf that is important to you; email the owner and ask them if the item was ever exposed to (cigar)ette smokeNow I need a book like this from Upper Deck
