We ask this because we are surprised, upon reflection, how much we like our 2009 Topps base cards in the dark-background version. It's one of the few sets we managed to complete this year and upon looking back, it's very appealing. Maybe we like basic black. Although as you know, in person, it's possible to see more of the background than in the photos. There's a touch, a suggestion, a hint, a dream of background action in each card, but only that. dayf's straightforward "joy of a completed page" feature got us thinking about this.So, although we liked many designs this year, this is our final vote. What set do you most enjoy from 2009 when you look at the cards in a binder? Or artfully strewn across a tabletop or the back seat of your car, for that matter. Looking back on this year that flew by,which 2009 set do you find most pleasing? Maybe it's a set that surprised you, as this one did us. Maybe it's an abiding love of retro that does it for you. Perhaps you flipped over something high end this year. We'd really love to know!
