1981 Topps–Robinson, Yastrzemski, Lopes, Soderholm

I’m collecting the 1981 set, slowly but surely. This post is the latest in my quest for the completion.
  • Card Facts – Bill Robinson – Pittsburgh Pirates – Card #51
  • Purchase Price – free (Trade with “Manupatches & Mustaches”)

He looks like he is trying to pretend to be a bad ass.  What the hell are you doing here?


    • Card Facts – Carl Yastrzemski – Boston Red Sox  – Card #110
    • Purchase Price – free (Trade with “Manupatches & Mustaches”)

Yastrzemski. Yastrzemski. Yastrzemski.  You all know who he is.  I know who he is.  I collected him as a kid and taught myself how to spell his last name when I was a kid, and still remember how to this day.  Although, now that I’ve typed it 3 times, I notice that the Windows Live Writer isn’t underlining it as a misspelled word.  Even Windows knows who Carl Yastrzemski is.  That’s how bad he was.


  • Card Facts – Dave Lopes – Los Angeles Dodgers – Card #50
  • Purchase Price – free (Trade with “JABO’s”)

With this card alone, I will probably set a record for most viewed 1981 post.  Between all the Lopes fans and Dodgers fans should set that record.


  • Card Facts – Eric Soderholm – New York Yankees – Card #383
  • Purchase Price – $.05 (Ebay lot 100/$4.99)

A Yankee.  Blah!

  • Cards posted in this set – 66
  • Total price paid – $2.14
  • Average price per card – $0.03
  • Cards left to post – 660
  • Percentage posted – 66/726 (9% posted)
  • Percentage completed – 494/726 (68% completed)

3 more freebies in this set.  I should complete this set pretty cheaply with all the awesome traders out there.  Thanks guys!
