This is based on the assumption that Topps will not be able to print cards of Individual Players after 2022.
What Topps should do is dump all of its product lines and produce one set. Select 600 individual players. (no all stars, league leaders etc).
But here is the kicker. For the 600 players put them each on a different Topps design from the last 70 years.
Yes, that's right a 42,000 card set (600 player x 70 years).
Say for Card Number 1. Mike Trout you would get him on a 1952, 1953, 1954.....2021 design.
(I know it would suck getting the 2021 design two years in a row).
Put the cards out in 10 or 20 series throughout the year.
Make the cards cheap and affordable as possible.
This would be the ultimate chase set. You could try to collect. many ways
You could try to collect all 42,000 cards.
You could try to collect one years card (i e 1965, 1979 etc...)
You could collect one player all 70 years.
or since each player would have the same number throughout each set you could complete a 600 card set with each number being any one of the 70 different designs. For example:
1. Mike Trout 1956
2 Vla Guerrero 1983
3. Fernando Tatis 1995 etc....
Its a pipe dream but of course I could be dreaming that there will not be anymore Topps baseball cards
