By now, most people have already had the opportunity to explore the 2015 Topps baseball card set through card packs--but not me. Each year, I wait for the factory sets to come out in early July before purchasing the the new issue of Topps baseball cards. This year I purchased the Ken Griffey Jr. factory set version, which included a 1999 chrome refractor and 5 bonus rookie card variations (another post). As with each new set, I begin by placing the cards in numerical order to ensure completeness before dividing it up the set by team sets and special cards. A 100-pack of 9-pocket pages and a couple of 1" binders finishes off my supply needs for organizing my card library.
Featured below is the 10-card checklist subset, which has been fairly standard since 2008 or 2009. The front of each card features a highlight from the previous season, while each card back features a portion the sets complete checklist. The 2015 Topps baseball card set increased in size this year to 700 cards numbered from 1-701. Card #7 was again not issued in honor of Mickey Mantle, which has been inconsistently applied since 1997.
