I have 100's of these that I bought every time I walked down to the drug store in Dry Ridge Ky back in '82 or so. Love the designs. I have 4 of the Ripken rookie cards!

I received this set as a Christmas present and it was my very first complete set I owned. Cal Ripken Jr RC #21 made that set IMO. He has been my idle ever since I first saw him. Matter of fact he tied Gehrig's record on my birthday! I don't have the set anymore nor any of his RCs which I regret trading them away. I traded them for 6 1989 Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck RCs, 2 1989 Donruss RCs, and 2 1989 Fleer RCs. I still have those today! They need to be graded but I would certainly trade Cal's RCs if anyone is interested. Anyway, that's my first experience with baseball cards.

This set is pretty loaded with Hall of Famers and is anchored by the Ripken rookie. I was able to get a set of these with a decent conditioned Ripken on eBay for $35. I'm happy for the find, but a little bummed at the value drop. I think the design is ok, but as a Dodger fan, I'm not sure why pink and purple are the key colors on their cards.

I didn't like the design of this card set and Topps in my opinion started to have a lot off years in terms of card design after this in my opinion but this set is extremely valuable as it features the Cal Ripken Jr. rookie where he is featured on the Orioles Prospects card set. Topps with this set started making individual cards for players who were named All Stars in addition to their regular cards instead of inserting an "All-Star" banner/insignia on their card.
