The most Topps cards in the 90’s – Bonds & Griffey

8 09 2016

Before I went and did the legwork on this – I would have guessed one of 3 players would have the most base Topps cards in the 1990’s.  Ken Griffey Jr. and Barry Bonds were the players of the decade depending on what source you looked at – they are obvious contenders.  Cal Ripken Jr. played the whole decade, won an MVP early on, and set a significant record halfway through – so he was an obvious contender.

I was right – on all 3 counts depending on how you look at it.  I include Topps, Topps Traded and Topps Debut in this.  From that perspective, Bonds and Griffey had the most cards, coming in at 22.

Barry Bonds (22)

  • 1990 (1) – base
  • 1991 (2) – base, AS
  • 1992 (2) – base, AS
  • 1993 (2) – base, AS
  • 1993 Traded (1) – base
  • 1994 (3) – base, AS, MOG
  • 1995 (2) – base, AS
  • 1995 Traded – ATB, AS
  • 1996 (2) – base, STP
  • 1997 (2) – base, SH
  • 1998 (1) – base
  • 1999 (2) – base, ATT

Ken Griffey Jr. (22)

  • 1990 (1) – base
  • 1990 Debut (1) – base
  • 1991 (2) – base, AS
  • 1992 (1) – base
  • 1993 (2) – base, AS
  • 1994 (3) – base, AS, MOG
  • 1995 (2) – base, AS
  • 1995 Traded (2) – ATB, AS
  • 1996 (2) – base, STP
  • 1997 (1) – base
  • 1998 (2) – base, IL
  • 1999 (3) – base, LL, ATT

If you don’t count Topps Debut – Bonds would have the most since he doesn’t have a Topps Debut card.  If you eliminate Topps Traded from this discussion, Bonds, Griffey and Ripken all have 19 cards.

Aside from Griffey and Bonds, 2 other players have over 20 cards in the decade:

  • Ripken – 21 cards
  • Frank Thomas – 20 cards

Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens and Matt Williams all have 18 cards.
