Call to order (Topps numbering system)

Came across this interesting item by Joe Posnanski on how the iconic baseball card company decides who gets the honors of the prime “real estate” of their annual output. At least that’s how it was in the 1976 set he bought on eBay. I haven’t bought sets in awhile; is that still the case?

Also, I wonder if anyone could tell me if the other card companies follow the same concept of ending the creme-de-la-creme in “00″, followed by those ending in “50,” then just plain “0,”and finally, those ending with “5.”

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
