“ I prefer the very original 1951 Blue Backs and Red Backs to all these confusing retro Heritage and Archives homage versions. I still like Heritage but very tired of Archives (due to it's jumping around with using all the designs that Heritage hasn't gotten to yet and using all the designs over and over). At least being a "mini" card it is closer to the originals than some of the other dozens of "standard sized" retros that have been overdone for this classic design. ” -captkirk42   3

This is gonna be a good RCOTD thread. I've been hating the Astros since they robbed us of one last WS in Old Busch. On the card itself, I wish Topps did have so many retro series like this. I just don't see why they need to have a dozen retro card styles.

Whenever I hear his name I can't not think of a sign at a card shop I go to that says we used to have a exit sign here but Jose Altuve stole it. Otherwise I like the design but it lacks the OG 1951 style for me.

Just seems like a not very nice playing card rather than a proper trading card.
