Show Off Those Cool Cards Of The 80's And Early 90's !!!!!
I know these were the overproduced years but this is when I was growing up collecting. I still remember when the hotest card out there was the 89 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr rc and about the only card you could come close to trading for it was the 1990 Leaf Frank Thomas rc (both of which I am currently looking to pick up :) ).
So this thread will be dedicated to showing off the cool cards of the 80's and 90's. Im talking about the two listed above, any other Griffey or Thomas rc's, 89 Fleer Billy Ripkens, Darryl Strawberry rc's, McGwire rc's, ----stuff like that. I dont care how overproduced they are I still love looking through cards from that era.
I dont have anything scanned right now but as soon as I do I will add them to this thread.
Please post the scans of the cards in this thread, not links to a bucket...
HAVE SOME FUN WITH THIS !!!!!! ANY CARDS FROM 1980 TO 1993 ARE ACCEPTABLE.

I'll start this off with the first cards I ever got. 1984 Ralston Purina/Topps
I don't know if they came in cereal or granola bars or what but those are it. I'm amazed I actually held on to them, I was only a kindergartner back then.

This one was always a tough one to find for me. One of the most difficult regional issues of the 80's to find. Even tougher to find in high grade fashion. This is the highest grade as of right now that you'll find of a Rickey.

Nice card. That's a great photo of young Rickey.

Figured Id throw this back up and see if anyone has anything new (or old...LOL) to offer.

I just haven't scanned many cards from that time frame.
So, one of each of my favorite two sets from the 80's, 1980 Topps, and 1989 Upper Deck.
