Clean Designs

 So some baseball from the COVID lot today, and just two sets, but decent enough designs. Topps used something very similar in the late 90s.

The designs were quite similar from 1999 and 2000. Even 2000 Opening Day which I am collecting is a simple silver border and oversized set logo, but at least the designs were simple and straight forward. Not overly exciting and was like the exit of the flashy multicolour designs that made much of the mid to late 90s.

Fine enough photyography for a flagship set, but the second set is the one I actually like much more...

Sure, two new for me Jays cards are a great outcome, but the Victory set here...I really like it. Good use of team colour on a simple design which doesn't take away from the photography. Not much more to ask for on the fronts.

By 2001 Carlos Delgado had finished his fourth season in a row of 30 or more home runs with the Jays.

Nick Johnson wasn't a bad rookie. He had a solid career exceeding 10 years, with stints in New York, Washington, Baltimore and with the Marlins.
