Like many kids, my baseball addiction began in a grocery store aisle.
On each trip to the store, mom made sure we never left without a red, see-through pack of 1991 Topps baseball cards.
Pack after pack, both my collection and desire to learn more about the game grew uncontrollably.
Before my family had ESPN or games could be streamed online, baseball cards served as the ultimate educational tool.
Without baseball cards, I would have never known Brett Butler led the American League with 14 triples in 1986 or that Phil Plantier walked 62 times with Pawtucket in 1990.
Just as radio inspired imagery in its' early days, Topps fulfilled my visual needs.
Here are my top 10 Topps baseball cards of 1991.
