Back in 1988 I gave a set of these to the son of a guy I worked with to get him started in the hobby. 1979 was the year he was born. A shame he had to start collecting during the JUNK WAX era. I wondering right now if he still collecting? Are you Mike? How do I remember his name.

This set was the first to add "Action Shots" to the set. Although I prefer the older styles of portraits or poses these were a breakthrough of card photography. I had jist started playing Pre Wee Reesce Baseball & we won packs when we hit or threw a strike out etc. I'm about 130+ cards in to building a PSA 8 and up set and I have 2 Wizard RC's, 1 is an 8 and the other a 9, centered on both! I enjoy the stats, personal history and factoids cards from 79 to 85 especially added to the cards. My favorite sets are in 1983 bcz that was my first year if bring old enough to care for them properly at 11yrs old. I have tons of those too. This set is hard to find in "Centered" shape no matter the grades or raw cards but they are really nice for the era and photography of that time capturing action photos. Great Stuf..
