Yesterday I posted a picture of my card show haul from this past Saturday. Among the loot were 19 binders.
I plan on going through each one and posting about it's contents,
First up is a binder of 1981 Topps cards.
The cards are all sorted by team. The best card in the entire binder was this Harold Baines RC.
Now, when I say best, I mean there were no other star cards in the entire binder. I'm not sure how this one made it through.
Out of the 374 cards in the binder, the Baines card is literally the only card of note. But the 374 cards does give me just over 50% of the 726 card set.
I found it interesting that there were no League Leader, 3 player Rookie Cards, checklists, Record Breakers, All-Stars, Play-Offs or World Series cards, or Team Checklists in the entire binder.
I'm trying to get a complete run of Topps cards from 1981 on, so this is a nice start to the set. I have a feeling though that it would be cheaper for me to just buy a complete set rather than try to add all the star cards to this one.
I did enjoy going through the binder though and I learned a few things.
I had no idea that Eddie Murray had a brother who played professional baseball.
What are your thoughts on 1981 Topps?
I paid $20 for the entire lot, which included the 19 binders and 5 boxed sets. Since it breaks down to less than $1 per item, how do you think I did with this binder?
