1987 Topps – lots and lots of Topps
I know these don’t look like much to you but it was awesome to see this many cards that I needed. It actually put the 1987 Topps set at 49.75% completed. With a few more that I got on Ebay, that set is now over 50% which makes the 3rd set of the vintage collection to reach that mark, the other 2 are the (1981 Topps set and the 1973 Topps set).
1986 Fleer – Danny Jackson and Tim Stoddard
A couple of 1986 Fleer, which I love seeing. I might have mentioned how much I like the 80’s fleer sets.
1986 is my 5th closest set completed in the vintage collection but it’s only at 13.26% completed so all of these definitely helped. Especially with a Hall of Famer and a should be Hall of Famer.
1985 Donruss – Rick Manning and Matt Young
A couple of 1985 Donruss that puts that set over 2% completed. I have a little ways to go.
This set is under 2% completed but more fleer, yeah!
1985 Topps – lots of cards
Now all of these 1985 cards were pretty awesome, as boring as this set can be, I always liked it. All of these cards put it at over 11% completed.
The Donruss card puts that set at 5.61% completed because I’ve gotten some of those through those 5 card lots. The Fleer puts that set at 2.12% as I don’t have many of those.
1984 Topps – You might recognize a couple of the names up there.
Have I mentioned how much I love the fleer sets. These cards put me over 3%. I was looking at my have list and was thinking maybe I like the fleer sets because they are numbered by teams. I noticed that because I saw the 3 San Francisco Giants cards all lined up. I knew they did it, I had just forgotten they did.
1983 Topps – Mike Scioscia
1 card from the Topps set but it’s a pretty good catcher in his day and a pretty good manager now.
These 7 cards put me at 30 for the set, which is equal to 4.55% completed. 2 more Giants cards, maybe Jeff has some love for them too.
I love the fleer, although the pic of Clark is kind of funny considering he’s taking a strike. Not exactly a flattering pose.
These 3 cards from the hockey stick set puts me at just over 4% on the set. I’m not sure why but when I see this set, I always picture a Toronto Blue Jay.
1981 Donruss – 15 different cards.
Don’t think I didn’t notice that you sent me 4 Chicago Cubs (5 if you include the Martin where he’s in a Cubs uniform). Your lucky I still need these for the sets. These 15 cards over doubled the set from what I had. It now stands at 4.3% completed.
These 6 fleer cards put me at 10 cards for the set. I didn’t have too many, 4 to be exact, but I’m over 1.5% now. I have a little ways to go.
1981 Topps – Randy Moffitt
Here, Jeff hit another set with over 50%. Of course, I’ve been working on it for a lot longer. This card is my 515th card of the set for just under 71% of the set.
1980 Topps – Roger Freed
The last set of the 80’s for today. This 1 card is my 36th of the set for just under 5%.
Be sure to come back tomorrow to see all the cards that Jeff sent me from the 1970s and go check out his blog at 2 by 3 Heroes.
