In January I added a 1962 Topps Bart Starr card to my collection... and on Saturday I opened up a package from Tom over at The Angels, In Order and saw this:
Damn... that's a mighty fine looking card. From 1987 to 1991, Topps produced 33 card small boxed sets for Toys R' Us.
Each year, Topps would switch up the color of the borders and card back designs, but they would always use the same simple, yet attractive set design. The 1987 and 1991 sets both used the black borders, but if you look at the Frank Thomas card you'll notice the word "Rookies" is printed with white text in a blue background. The 1987 set substitutes blue for pink.
I'm such a big fan... that my goal is to eventually collect all 165 cards and display them in a binder. So far, I have the 1988, 1989, and 1990 sets... but I still need the bookends.
Well... that's it for today. I hope all of you have a great week. Tom... thanks again for the cards.
Happy Monday and sayonara!
