Year: 1991

Set: Topps (Rate)

Card: #451 Neal Heaton

“ He appears to be propping up the border with his foot. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I actually like this set quite a bit since they used team fonts for the team name. Plus it's a Buccos card! It appears the picture was taken at Three Rivers Stadium. It was a dreadful place to watch baseball, I kinda miss it, a little. ” -Gunny

“ I have been looking through too many 1991 Topps recently looking for all the variations. Dark logo, black light, normal, or some variation of them all. I used to like this set but as time has gone by it has diminished and is now one of my least favorite sets. The redeeming factor is basically the Chipper Jones rookie card. ” -davidhandberry

“ It's a 1991 Topps. I'm surprised there's not 23 different errors/variations of this card. ” -DocOso

“ Nice early 1990s Topps card. ” -captkirk42

“ Absolutely love the 1991 Topps cards. This was the peak of my childhood collecting years and this set brings back so many good memories. ” -carthage44

“ 1991 Topps the last year that they used the grey cardboard back. ” -kirkscards

“ What a nondescript player and card. At least its a RCOTD I own. You'd think Topps could have done better for the 40th, but I do miss borders.... ” -Vvvergeer

I didn't like the front design back then and I still don't today. It was/is still WAY better than the 1990 set. But 1987, '89 and '92 are still some of my favorite Topps designs. There are quite a few designs since '92 that I also like though.

It was definitely a disappointment for an anniverary set; as for the player, Heaton at least had a couple of decent years after he left Cleveland (which was the case often back then).

Good one Billy! As for the card, I've always liked the 1991 Topps design. 1995 is still my favorite.
