1984 Topps Wax Pack

This is the 100th post on the A Pack A Day blog; but unfortunately, this pack is a complete dud. In my opinion, 1984 Topps is a very classic set. The layout is spot on with 2 photos on the front and the team name down the side; all without the overly ornate stripes and facsimile autographs from 1982. And the square head shot makes this set look a little bit more classic than the rounded shots of 1983-- all great sets in my opinion; I just think the layout on the '84 set is superior.
What a drag it is that Champ Summers didn't become a star-- he sure had the name (and look) of one.

I agree. I always liked the design of the 84 cards, which also made it very easy to lay out the cards on the floor when going through stacks to find doubles. The player's name could be read while placing the next player card on top, etc.
