Maddux Collection: 1990 Topps #715

What's not to love about 1990 Topps? The cards are colorful and are on cardboard. Sure, the color borders can be tacky, but imagine how awful the set would look if every card used the exact same color scheme?

OK. If pressed, I can find a few things I don't like about 1990 Topps. First, it is almost impossible to find cards that weren't slightly miscut. Also, the cards are virtually worthless, so there's that. Still, I love the set and I love most of Topps designs right up through 1990.
Notice those 82 walks in 1989? Not a great number ... not an awful one. Mad Dog would never top 80 again. I miss watching Maddux pitch.
