I will always look on 1980s cards with great fondness because they were a huge part of my childhood. Getting my first complete set (1985 Topps) was a thrill I will never forget. When I paid for that set ($18), I felt like I had arrived. Not just a kid buying packs with lots of doubles, but now someone with all 792 cards. I look at that same set now and see how off center so many of the cards were, diamond cuts, soft corners, etc. But I still feel a little of that joy I had when I was 10 whenever I look at them, and that makes them invaluable.
