Stacked with all kinds of Hall of Famers (Ripken, Ryan, Henderson, Seaver, Carlton, Murray, Brett, Schmidt, Reggie, Sandberg, Dawson, Molitor, Yount, Rose...wait not Rose) This was a good set to have, tough to keep mint with the black top border. Again it was important to me as this was the first year I started collecting.
But even the guys who had great careers in the 1980s and 1990s. Dwight Gooden, Darryl Strawberry, Joe Carter, Tim Raines, Ozzie Guillen RC, all kinds of semi-stars in this batch.
This is why I am also in favor of the Topps Archives, I am hopeful that Topps will include more 1986 style next edition.
By the way, Game 1 in Detroit was awesome. Verlander was filthy and the playoff atmosphere downtown was electric. Too bad MLB Network had Game 2 for another outstanding game.
Let's get some trades going!
