The 1977s have grown on me in recent years.  I like 76 and 78 so much, but had very few 77s as a kid, so I kind of overlooked them.  Now I have several and like them a lot.


-------------------------------

Just because my LCS charges a quarter for commons, and I buy some, does not mean they're worth a quarter.  It means he has no competition within 150 miles.

This is one of my favorite Topps sets.  The All-Star cards with that bold banner made my eyes spin as a kid.  Still do.  I think this was the best looking Tom Seaver card ever made.  Garvey and Carew as well.
