2015 Topps Baseball History 7B
I have always enjoyed the Flashbacks insert sets from the Heritage line, and I thought it strange that Topps would include the Baseball History insert set in this year's Series 1 set. With so many other insert possibilities, the idea of putting out a set that puts baseball in a more historical context seems like it would be more at home in Heritage. That being said, I do like this 15- well, 30- card set.
Although I probably won't collect its counterpart, I would be remiss if I didn't at least mention card #7A, which commemorates the premier of the iconic American Top 40 with Casey Kasem. The radio program, which continues today with host Ryan Seacrest, was just as much a part of many our lives as was This Week in Baseball or that 25 cent Topps wax pack. I don't know if there was any mention of the Home Run King on that week's countdown, but there was another King who had a hit in the Top 10 that week- Elvis.
Thanks again, John, for the trade, and remember... Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.
