1) I now have the Mattingly card that was the big reason why I thought the set was out of reach in the first place.
2) I actually have two of the Strawberry rookies, one of which I got out of a dime box.
3) None of the cards in the set are worth a damn anymore anyway.
The third revelation is the most important, because it means I can probably finish off my other 'impossible' '80s set next: 1985 Topps. The Clemens and Big Mac rookies are no longer selling for a Franklin each now that everyone hates them. Hooray for steroids! First things first though:
1984 Topps Wantlist
512 Oscar Gamble
563 Glenn Wilson
Note: it will probably take me a while to get back on any offers, I'm still hunting down cards for Greg and Mr. Haverkamp from my last wave of wantlists. Also, if anyone needs cards from this set e-mail me, I've got a ton of doubles.
Have: 777/792 - 98.1%
