1987 Topps Baseball were the first packs I remember opening. I had been mowing a few of my neighbor's yards and delivering newspapers around my home town for a steady income that supported my moon pie and soda pop urges when the dime store started stocking these wood-toned beauties. After opening a few packs looking for the hot rookies with the golden cup I was hooked. I will forever be a collector thanks to the 1987 Topps Baseball Series.

I was gifted a ton of my friend's duplicates of this 1987 Topps set. While not the best looking cards, it sparks a fond memory of my childhood.

This is the ugliest and most unoriginal Topps card design of the 80's. I remember first seeing it and thinking the marketing staff was really lazy that year and stole the 68' card design.
