The 1958 is my least favorite design because of its solid background.

But I've always wondered if Topps did that because of the Dodgers' and Giants' move to California, and since the majority of player photos were taken in New York it would have been just too weird to have Ebbets Field and the Polo Grounds in the background. (I don't know if this backs up my theory or not, but their team cards identify them as "1957 Dodgers," "1957 Giants" whereas the other team cards are identified not by date but by city.)
