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.

I also like the earlier 80s sets. Like the sets these two are from:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

I also collect rookies from the 80's in PSA 8 slabs because I remember not being able to afford them as a kid or never being lucky enough to pull them from packs. So now that I'm older, I'm picking them up. In PSA 8 they aren't that expensive but are still very nice examples. That way I can get more of them for the same price as say a PSA 10 example.
I can relate! This year I have picked up really nice condition sets that I never could have as a kid, like '84 Fleer Update and '84 Donruss to name a couple.

I don't do twitter or FB although I have a rarely used FB account. IF you love them hop back over, it's all good. Just have fun. As for sections, all is good on that front too. Lots of our pre-war members like 1980s cards, apparently. All collecting is good if you are having fun and keeping it above board.

Come on over, we actually have fun over there...Cards From The Attic
