I am closing in on sharing all the insert sets I picked up in 2019 Topps Series 1 as my COMC order with the last needed Series 2 inserts in on the way.
I have been thinking about setting a stop date on my annual Topps set build. I was born in 1971 and was thinking 2021 might be a good stop date, 50 years after my birth. I am thinking I would rather build some of the 1950s and 60s sets plus the storage of all these sets is getting tough. I would love to retire in about 10 years and we have talked of downsizing the house post retirement and I am not sure how much space I will have to store my collection. No need to make a decision today but thought I would share what is on my mind.
Let's get to the cards! Once again Topps decided to dedicate an insert set to reprints, this year they are calling them the Iconic Card Reprints. I didn't mind these types of sets when they first came out but they are getting a little old and repetitive. This year there are a few pre-war cards and Bowman cards mixed in which helps a bit but a 50 card insert set with a lot of recycled reprints in Series 1 was a little much.
Here are the cards in all their glory along with the back of the first card:
