Topps and Bowman year "type sets"?
I have idea that might be worth some further thought and discussion. So this is the idea... what do you all think about having a type set for each year that would involve one card from each American and National league team? The rationale in part would be to have a smaller, manageable collection from each year and the collective total for the card collection for 2-3 decades would be likely be the equivalent of owning about 400-700 cards or so. This might encourage some collectors to put a type set together for a year that they see as to challenging to complete. And then, a collection could be more representative as to how baseball cards evolved over time.
Just a thought... and it may be an idea whose time has not come even though there is compelling logic that should make the concept attractive.
