My top 25 sets #24: 2010 Topps
Set: 2010 Topps
Number of cards in set: 661 in the base set (not counting update & highlights)
Affordability: 9.. not overly expensive, entire set "books" for $80
Key RCs: Buster Posey, Jason Heyward
Is the set built?: 100% complete
What I like about this set: I really do like the design. I like it more than 2011 and 2012, especially the back of the card which uses the team logo in the lower left. The action shots are quite good as well.
Topps decided to include a lot of short printed cards of retired players in this set, along with the pie variation cards as well.
What I didn't like about this set: It's well enough that Topps used a bunch of short printed variations, but short printing the first card of Stephen Strasburg was a little much for some to swallow.
This is another set that will likely fall off of the countdown in 2013.
Thanks for reading, Robert
