The best way to navigate this blog is to access the posts under the CHECKLISTS banner to the right. Opening one of these posts reveals a list of all the known cards for that particular series. You can then click on the card title to see the actual card. Some show the front and back of the cards while others only show the front.
2012 and 2013 are still empty as I've only just started to compile this blog and it's going to take a while to get the earlier checklists updated.

2012 Allen & Ginter - Guys in Hats

It seems that Topps' artists used actual photos of eminent people to create this set of cards - 6 have been identified so far, but I haven't yet been able to confirm GH-3 as J. Edgar Hoover...

GH-1.  The Bowler - Butch Cassidy
GH-2.  The Boater
GH-3.  The Fedora - J. Edgar Hoover
GH-4.  The Fez - His Majesty King Fuad I of Egypt and Sudan
GH-5.  The Pith Helmet
GH-6.  The Top Hat - Winston Churchill
GH-7.  The Mortarboard - Linus Pauling (biochemist, two-time Nobel Prize winner), from a graduation photo taken in 1922 
GH-8.  The Flat Cap
GH-9.  The Garrison Cap
GH-10.  The Bicorne - Napoleon Bonaparte
