2020 Finest Flashback vs. 1993 Finest

Heritage, Archives, and now Flashback.  Topps keeps rolling out the tribute sets.  I usually compare the original cards to the remakes so let's go ahead and do that with 2020 Finest Flashback.

It's not easy to compare the cards based on the scans as the refractor cards don't scan particularly well.  But there are several differences.  The letters on the top of the 1993 cards have a more defined border.  The font for the player's name on the 2020 card isn't even close to what was used on the original.
The scan of the 2020 All-Star card came out much darker than what it looks like in hand.  It's color is actually pretty close to the green on the original.  Otherwise, the designs matched up fairly well.  Fairly well, but not exact.

I've given up on exact copies.

  1. Wow. That Sandberg refractor scanned really well. Love the rainbow of colors.
