Topps Was Way Ahead on the 10-Year Challenge

Flipping through some Twins today and I was reminded that Topps was ahead of the game on the 10-Year Challenge. 



But then Topps has been in the flashback game since 1972 Topps with its "Boyhood Photos of the Stars"subset that included Tom Seaver, Joe Torre, Sal Bando and Willie Stargell. The cards were first included in Series 3 and then again in Series 4 but weren't found in Series 5 and 6.


These cards were never my particular favorites but they might have been had they evened out the photo sizes like they did in the Mauer card.
