My First 2020s

I am kind of surprised how hard it has been for me to get used to the new decade being called the "20's". The year 2020 just looks wrong to me, even now almost two months in. I suppose I'll get used to it eventually.

I'm also kind of surprised I like the 2020 Topps set. I got my first cards from it in the generous Free Stuff Friday giveaway from Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary. I like the metallic aspects on the front and back, gives it a "serious" look. The set doesn't really have character, doesn't jump out at you, but it's not bad - first impression is that I like it.
 He also sent me some '19 set needs, including what I think is my first from '19 Update.
 Finally, a few older cards I needed. I love that shiny Topps Fire card!


  1. 2020 Topps suffers from another round of close cropping, imo. The shiny Fires are the best!!

  2. "Doesn't have character"


    That's what's wrong with it.

  3. Yeah the 2019 set didn't impress me but I collected it anyway. Doubt I'll do that for '20. The last three cards were my favorite here. I'm drawn to those OPC black parallels in particular.
