The 2010 regular season may still have two weeks left in it, but Topps is already planning ahead to next season. On Thursday afternoon, the company used its Facebook page to show off a mock-up of what its 2011 baseball cards will look like.
The cards look somewhat similar to this year’s design, with a small amount of foil stamping on the front and a white border.
The player’s name appears on a semi-circular banner with his position now at the very bottom of the card, instead of the lower left. It would appear as if the team logos are a bit smaller and have moved from the left to the right.
“I like it,” said one fan. “Base Topps should always be a clean, simple design.”
Said another, “I really like the action shot. That’s the way cards should be. Players in action at least in my opinion”.
Here’s a look at some more images.
