|1987 Topps #170|
Like many, I still hold a soft spot for this set in my heart. Although Topps redoing the design almost every year (or so it seems) can get a little overbearing, the wood-grain borders and the circular logo area, plus the name box at the bottom will always remind me of growing up and searching desperately through box upon box for any 1987 Topps that I might need. I wonder how many other bloggers put this set as the first one they tried to complete?
For the record, the first set that I ever did fully complete was 1990 Topps football, and that was for no other reason than the fact that I had most of the cards, and my dad had the rest. I didn't buy a single one.
That's all I've got today; I'll see about getting another 30 day challenge post up tomorrow. If you didn't blog about it (or even if you did; I could have missed it), tell me in the comments what the first set that you tried to build was. Did you succeed? Do you still have the complete set somewhere?
Thanks for reading, and have a blessed Opening Day! Go Reds!
