This time it is 1999.
And without border:
Side by side:
I never was super fond of the whole gold borders in this set. It seemed like the borders were too thick and the actual gold tone was a bit off.
The gold curve at the bottom threw the whole card off, to me at least.
The borderless version has a nice, clean, classic look to it. Simple and elegant.
If they had put the position of the player in the lower left corner it would have been perfect.
I would have loved it if Topps had used this version instead of the one they went with.
Up next, 1998 Topps. Which, surprise, has a gold border.
