From 2009 until 2015, Matt Wieters had an exclusive contract with Upper Deck to produce his cards, and eventually Panini. Which means from that time period, Matt Wieters has no Topps cards.
This pissed off a lot of collectors in that era, especially in the era where the Orioles were competitive and Wieters was one of the best catchers in baseball. So restoring these years to his Topps legacy is one of the things I wanted to truly get right if I were to ever finally do this project. Well...the time has come. Here is every Topps card that should have happened for Wieters from this period.
2009, his rookie year: 96 games, a .288 average, 43 RBIs and a 1.4 WAR. Not a bad rookie start, and a real wonder as to why he didn't get any ROY votes.
2010: 130 games, .248 average, 111 hits, 53 RBIs, 2.6 WAR. He's the starter, he's a big piece of the lineup, and he's getting the hang of things.
In 2016, he returns to form, gets another ASG nod, and Topps finally picks him up. But this period of Wieters' career, obviously his peak, could have used some Topps recognition, even if contracts can be annoying sometimes.
