Honorary mentions for 89 UD changing the game, 2002 Fleer Maximum, 98/99 Gold Label, and Topps Tribute base cards (2011-2014)

    Also, I refuse to believe anyone liked 1992 Bowman. Im still surprised the Bowman reboot ever got to where it is today considering the absolute garbage they started with the first 5 years

    From what I remember reading in a 1992 card magazine, Topps said that if 1992 isn't a hit with all the upgrades they added, then the Bowman line will be cancelled.

    And I assume at first they thought it wasn't coming back as the orders were light which led to how how it became.

    My favorite base design is probably 1997 Ultra, which they also did for basketball and football. It's borderless and I like the neon lettering. And it has some of the nicest looking inserts to boot.
