Last year, I took it upon myself to go through and make a Top 10 list of the Greatest Red Sox cards for 2019. It was insane, and it was almost impossible to narrow my choices down to just 10. So why not go back down the rabbit hole and do it again this year?
This year has been easier. Funny how when your team isn't coming off a World Championship the number of great cards decreases significantly. After going through all the major sets, I hand-picked 25 potential candidates. I was able to cull a few from there easy enough, and the Top 6 cards came to light rather easily.
Just like last year, the back end of cards is where it gets tough. I have 12 cards left, and only 4 spots available. I figured why not take an informal poll and see what my readership thinks. I'll present a group of cards that I think are similar in nature and you can comment with your choice for each group. Full disclaimer here, I'm not automatically awarding the remaining spots to the cards with the highest vote totals. I'm just curious to see what other would pick, and why.
Which of these cards is the greatest?
Group A: "Fielder's Choice"
Group B: "There Is No I In Team"
Group C: "Mama's Little Baby Like Short Prints, Short Prints"
Group D: "Above The Rest"
Again, the winner of each group doesn't automatically make my Top 10. It just gives me added perspectives as I decide which cards make the cut.
What say you, loyal readers? Which cards would you choose as the best of the year?
