The annual Topps baseball card set is one that always gets plenty of attention and often every little detail gets examined.

That’s what happens when you’re a product that has existed year-in, year-out for 60 years.

Here’s what you’ll need to be looking for when the cards arrive in February … a first look at the packaging, which features New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano.

what, no Strasburg on the package?

Topps really needs to move HQ out of New York – I hate the Yankees but I’m even more sick of them thanks to Topps who gives the Yankees way too much exposure and doesn’t realize there are 29 other clubs in MLB.

Comment by Robert S.

Robert, are you serious? Why would Topps put Strasburg on 2011 product packaging? He’s not going to be playing, remember? Obviously, Cano is on the front because he had an exceptional year, and offensively carried the Yankees. The last time a Yankee made the front of packaging was series 1 in 2009. That’s 2 whole years. Premier players get more exposure, and with Strasburg hurt, there is no way that he’s going to show up on the front of a box.

Luke, take it easy…Robert was being funny w/ the Strasburg comment. That’s Topps’ golden boy.

I 100% agree with Robert about the Yankees and Topps. Miguel Cabrera had a way better year than Cano…why not put Miggy on the cover? Or maybe the MVP Josh Hamilton, or the CY Young winner King Felix? When is the last time a Tiger was on the box? Enough of the Yankees, and ENOUGH of the Mantle, Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio legend cards…
