This is the first set I remember being with my parents when the cards were purchased. I love the wood grain frame. This is one set I will need to get the full set of even though I didn't have a whole lot of them.

This was the first set that I started collecting as a kid. Beautiful wood grain borders. They were pretty and plentiful at a very nice price. A very valuable lesson surrounding this for me. I was a poor kid and made a poor decision to stick some in my pocket without paying. The first and only time that I have ever stole anything. When I got home and was opening them, my dad asked me where I got them. I told them that I got them at the store. He asked where I got the money...uh, uh,...He wore my tail out, loaded me up in the car, took me to the store and made me go in and apologize with tears streaming down my face. Lesson learned!

A great set, and how could it not be...A Barry Bonds RC and a Bo Jackson RC all in the same set...Nice...Not one of the first sets I collected, that honor goes to the 1978 Topps baseball set, but it is the one that started me on my serious collecting journey (Thanks Kevin, you're the man...) It got an 8 from me only because of the over production, but otherwise a nice, fresh look from Topps. I like the "wooden" borders...
