Please excuse any over-pontificating that I happen to do of this set, but let’s be serious here.  1987 was possibly the best year for cards in my lifetime.  The field was expanded to three companies and all three had something to set their set apart from the rest.  Topps and Fleer had great, simple, yet nice looking designs and Donruss… well, they were Donruss.  Donruss saves itself with the lone non-update issue Greg Maddux rookie card.

The oldest cards I remember having in the first incarnation of my collection were from 1987 Topps back around 1989 or More >
