2021 Topps Spotlight 70 Baseball Checklist, Team Set Lists and Details

Share:

2021 Topps Spotlight 70 Baseball is offers another artistic look back on seven decades of baseball cards from the card maker. This time, it’s through the eyes and paintbrush of Andy Friedman.

Instead of the usual superstar suspects, Friedman opts for more of a fan favorites approach. Think Kevin Bass instead of Mike Trout, Ron Washington over Ronald Acuna Jr., and Ken Griffey Sr. rather than his son.

As for the cards themselves, Friedman recreates cards from the past using watercolors. The result is more abstract than photorealistic but also filled with color.

    Drawing a stick of gum and selling it for money…man did I pick the wrong line of work.

      Pretty sure the other 85 paintings he did are the main component of this project.
