Yesterday I wrote a return post that included a lot more complaining than I would have liked. Yes, it feels kind of normal to complain about Topps because they are honestly not doing a very good job with their product recently. However, I decided that instead of complaining and just being negative, I would do something about it. I would remake a Series 1 team set using only guys that made their Rockies debut in 2020. I also decided that instead of using a stolen 2020 Donruss design like Topps did, I would use a stolen 1977 Topps design like I did in 2013. I used the relatively simple, but much more eye appealing, design from my 2013 Quarry Unlimited set to showcase the Rockies from the truncated pandemic season.
As an aside, was any word more overused when describing last year's season that truncated? Until 2020, that was a word that you maybe saw 5 times in your life, but last year it felt like every hack sportswriter got the same word of the day calendar and just beat it into the ground describing the 2020 baseball season. Can you think of any other words that you feel like came out of nowhere to be used only in one relatively small situation in life?
Anyway, no one came here to talk about vocabulary, so let's take a look at the debuting Rockies of 2020 in all their purple (and red) majesty.
