2013 Topps Matt Holliday 2011 World Series Patch
The biggest issue with the patch cards this year is that they seem very random. Last year, we had a cool set of retired numbers which were cool to track down and find. The year before that Topps gave us patch cards featuring the different logos that the different MLB teams had used throughout their history. This year there is no theme. I had seen Holliday on the checklist and tracked this card almost immediately after the set's release. Seeing the World Series logo I thought that maybe Topps was going back to the All-Star game and Postseason patches, but that theme doesn't hold true. There are team logos, stadium logos, all-star games, and several other different designs. I am happy to have my new Matt Holliday World Series patch, but will probably leave it here as far as picking up manupatches from the 2013 Topps set.
