What is better than celebrating a Phillies grand slam than opening a pack of 24 year old cards? I can't think of much. I paid $2 for this pack in Reading. I believe this is the first pack of '84 Topps I have ever opened. Good stuff. Here goes.
Blue Jays Leaders (Moseby/Stieb)
NL Career Hit Leaders (Rose/Staub/Perez)
Gene Tenace, in a great uniform. I had no idea he was still playing in 1983.
NL Active Strikeout Leaders (Carlton/Ryan/Seaver)
NL RBI Leaders (Murphy/Cooper/Rice)
Ken Schrom with print mark
Tom Burgmeier doing his best kung fu impression
Ken Griffey with the gum on the back
The gum wasn't half bad.
