    Horizontal Set???

    Wonder if Topps will ever make a regular all horizontal set again, like the 1960 set.
    Would you like it if they did?

    Doubt it though 2009 Heritage is one of my favorite recent sets for that reason.

    I would like it. Something a little different.

    I'd be very cool with that.

    But I prefer it to be ALL horizontal as opposed to a mix.

    And wasn't the first Stadium Club reboot ('15?) mostly horizontal?

    I like it both ways, but agree with the sentiment of not mixing it up. All one way or the other.

    I was thinking of the totally horizontal set that would be like 1960, 1956 or 1955. I think it would be something different and it has been quite a long time since it has been done. Love seeing the discussion!!!

    When this topic comes up, it has it's defenders and detractors. If you want to have a horizontal set just because, I mean, sure, why not? Some of the best, most memorable photos are horizontal, but it would be hard to find 100+ cards that are all impactful and are best shown wide. It all works together, the design of the card and the photo being framed. If you can get a set full of something like this, it's great:

    I have personally never shied away from horizontal cards being added to my collection and some of my favorites are horizontal. I would be interested in a horizontal set and singles, if the design elements are appealing to me. I especially enjoy the auto, horizontal cards because the quality is usually better from the extra provided space.
