One More to Go, Boys
January 22nd, 2012 by slangon

So a few hours from now, Big Blue and the Niners will be flipping a coin to see who kicks off in the NFC Championship game.

A few hours after that, I’ll either be deliriously happy that the Giants are heading to the Super Bowl again or I’m going to be some form of pissed / sad / disappointed / frustrated / drunk. Well, that last one will probably happen either way. Let’s go Big Blue.

By the way, I’ve mentioned on this blog in the past my theory regarding Topps designers recycling designs and reusing them for other sports, right? Well, take a good gander at these 2 1960 Topps Football cards. Now take a look at this. I think I might be on to something.

  1. Check the lettering of 1959 Topps Football and 1960 Topps baseball, and the TV format of 1955 Bowman baseball and 1966-67 Topps Hockey . You are on to something, and there’s more. Keep thinking well and looking.

    Well done on the 1954 Topps breakdown. I think you’ve figured it out…and the backs are beautiful. I believe Sy Berger was quoted as considering 1954 Topps his favorite design.

    Thanks and keep up the good work!
