1984 Topps Baseball

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)
Elias Sosa
NL Career Hit Leaders (Rose/Staub/Perez)
Bobby Grich

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 Gorman
Al Bumbry

Tom Burgmeier doing his best kung fu impression
Graig Nettles
John Shelby
Rob Picciolo
Ken Griffey with the gum on the back

The gum wasn't half bad.
