1993 Topps Regular vs. Gold

I really like 1993 Topps but for me the gold set trumps the regular set.

Here's the regular set design:

1993 Topps Gold #682
Nice, clean design. Colors of the bottom banner usually match the team of the player pictured.

The only thing that has bugged me about the set is the white space where the player's name is printed. It takes away the banner from standing out more and makes for an extended bottom white border which drags your eye down and hurts the photo a little bit.

With the gold version you simply do not have any of these problems:

The extra thick gold at the bottom takes way much of that empty white space and seems to clean the card design up.

I have been collecting this set for a bit and have 59 of the gold cards.

It just looks cleaner with the gold. And a little more elegant.


  1. I loved the gold cards from the '92 and '93 sets. That's a nice one to try and put together. Good luck.
