I still ask Santa for a complete set of Topps baseball cards every year!  Starting in 1986, Topps began putting out their full sets around the Holidays in boxes with colors and pictures of players, aiming at kids wanting the boxes as gifts. 1986 was right around the time I began collecting baseball cards; well played, Topps. Asking Santa for the full set is still something I love to do.  As I won't be opening the sets, I actually don't mind if the BLUE or RED sets end up under the Christmas tree this year.  If you're looking for special cards, though, make sure to look for the right box!

When you get your box, be it from family, friend,  Santa, or you just want to treat yo self, do you plan on opening the box to see what's inside?  Let us know here on the page or on our Facebook page!
