#3 Topps Heritage 392 Infield Power - I guess I'm old school because throwbacks are always the best cards. I love the way this matches the original infield power card from 1959.
#2 Masterpieces 78 Lack Lambert - I don't even own this card and I love it. Since he turned down my offer to trade it to me I had to steal the image from Cardboard Junkie. What a great painting of a throwback legend. The black border really makes it look good. I saw one that wasn't bordered and it wasn't half as nice.
#1 Upper Deck 229 Manny Ramirez - It pains me to say but this card wins by a landslide. I don't like Upper Deck. I said before that I am an old school card lover. To me cards are supposed to have a border, that is just the way it is supposed to be and the 08 set is clearly a early 90s Stadium Club rip off. The other thing that drives me nuts about Upper Deck is those ridicules YSL cards. I hate when the insert in my pack is a YSL card I fell ripped of and violated every time I pull one. But in this case Upper Deck did great, this card is just awesome. It was even a good thing there was no border. It is so crystal clear (just like a Stadium Club). You can see all of the people in the stands going nuts and the players spilling out of the dugout on the way to celebrate. Like Ali standing over Liston this is a perfectly caught moment.
