Man this thread takes me back. I was a heavy collector of mostly baseball cards from the late 70s to the late 80s. Would hit up antique malls, card shows, flea markets, or just ride my bike to the store and buy as many packs as I could.
Once I get my house back in order I am going to get all of my stuff out and see exactly what I have. There are thousands of cards stored away in my spare bedroom closet. Some in notebooks and some in shoe boxes. I have some mid to late 80s full sets of Topps. I have 2 sets from, if memory serves, Clemens, Mcgwire, and maybe Randy Johnson's rookie year. I also have a full box of 1981 Fleer unopened packs. I wonder if they have any value. If not I may sit down and open them. I think I may have a Rickey Henderson rookie and a Fernando Valenzuela rookie and in football a Joe Montana rookie.
The three players I collected the most were Rose, Carew, and Yazstremski. I have a lot of cards of those three.
I may start looking at them today.
