I think most of the cards Topps produced in the '80s were not bad looking. My favorites are '80, '82, '87, and '88. Then things went downhill quickly in '90.

I like the 1980-1983 designs. Not a huge fan of the years after that. One of the reasons I like the Topps Archives series is to see current players on revived old designs that I hadn't thought about in a while. They've done a nice job with these.

I like everything from the 80's because that's what I could afford as a kid and they are even more affordable as an adult.

Default Not much there I like, but

I think my favorite would have to be the 1981 Fleer Star Stickers! 84 Donruss kinda cool too and the 87 and 89 Fleer Glossy sets.

Is there a discussion forum for non-vintage cards here? The only thing I saw for '80s cards is a buy-sell-trade forum. Wouldn't mind seeing a proper discussion forum here because this is an intelligent site.

Except for that part, sorry...

I like the Topps Heritage sets (I think that's what you're referring to) for the same reason. It gives me a chance to "collect" the old designs without paying collector's prices for vintage cards of players I may not know.

I just with they had waited a year to start the series, so that the designs they used would be from 50 years earlier, instead of 49.

1987 Topps. I was 12 that year and it was the first set I ever tried to build by hand. Got about half way there, but had just as many doubles. Gave up but then got the boxed set for Christmas. And that Bo Jackson Future Stars card....love it.

Someday Iíll buy an unopened box on eBay (30 bucks?) just to see if I can pull another Bo. Good memories of that set. Love the wood grain.

Of course, then Iíll have to figure out what to do with all those commons. Would it be frowned upon if I admit that Iíve been slowly chucking my 80ís and 90ís junk wax common cards into the recycle bin as the years go by?
