Appreciating 80's Cards
 
From a value perspective I know it's hard to get jazzed up about the junk wax era and though a lot of the designs were cheesy, some were actually quite good IMO. Here is an Eric Davis card that I think looks really good.

What do you guys think? Anyone else have some love for the 80's?

Personally I don't. I only have one card from the '80s; but to each his own.

perhaps you'd find some love in the appropriate section!:D

Agree relocation would be best for input. My favorite issues from 80s:

Topps 1982 Blackless
Topps 1984 Encased OR Head In The Box
Topps 1985 Minis
Topps 1988 Cloth
Topps 1989 Big Head Suckers

Putting all those sets together would be expensive, and time consuming

Here's an umbrella hat for the OP to protect from the "wrong section" rain. :D

This thread was left here to get more input from all members. Generally speaking it would go in the appropriate era section. But it's a good question for everyone. For me, I am not really an 80s collector. :)

I don't have many baseball cards I don't like.

Each is a product of its time, and represents that time.


Oh, and lets call things properly. It's a Brockabrella.

I like the earlier 80s sets. The 1980 Topps set is one of my all-time favorites. It came out when I was just starting to collect, and has always resonated with me.

I like the 1984 Donruss set a lot, too. And, I admit to being a sucker for 1987 Topps. The wood grain throwback to 1962, and the reappearance of the Topps rookie team trophies made it fun to collect. Jose Canseco, Wally Joyner, Danny Tartabull. Good times when one of them popped in a wax pack.

Without one of those cards can you even consider yourself a collector?

I have an insane amount of 80's cards. My favorite are the print errors.
