The contest may be over, but I still have repack wax to rip.
1987 Topps is my favorite set from the Overproduction Era, perhaps because it was the first year I started collecting in earnest. I no longer have my original collection, but I'm certain I bought at least 2000 cards of 1987 topps, one wax pack at a time. I never did finish the set; Steve Ontiveros eluded me.
Cardinals Leaders - Mike LaValliere and some pitcher. The Wizard of Oz in the background, toeing the dirt.
Todd Worrell--Record Breaker - This was one of my favorite cards at the time. Something about the drama of the photo, and the fact that Worrell was like the best rookie closer ever.
A's Leaders - Tony Larussa, Mickey Tettleton, Carney Lansford and a random coach discussing what to buy for a wedding gift.
George Brett - This is one for the HOF binder. Fun game: find the Topps cards with the most stats italicized. I will probably turn this into a contest to run on EX-MT, so keep your best finds secret. This Brett card has fourteen italicized entries. Easy to top, I believe.
Rich Gossage - Back-to-back HOFers, although this one can also go in the Smile binder.
Denny Walling - I'm thinking of starting a donut binder. Just because.
The scanner cut off the top of most of these. The perfectionist in me says to redo them. Or at least he would if I hadn't strangled him years ago.
