2014 Topps Throwback Thursday 1980's Online Exclusive Postcard

Card Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: Thowback Thursday 1980's Postcard
Year: 2014
Card Number: NNO
Card Type: Online Exclusive box set
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial number: 33/49

What better way to celebrate Thurday then with a throwback?  A Topps throwback.  These cards were part of a larger 15 card set you could only find on  Topps did a 2014 version and these 1980's versions.  I for the life of me couldn't  find a full checklist for the sets.  Topps website isn't very helpful.  But I've pieced together the 15 card set from the internet.

Wade Boggs 
George Brett
Gary Carter
Dwight Gooden
Tony Gwynn
Orel Hershiser
Paul Molitor
Jack Morris
Dale Murphy
Eddie Murray
Cal Ripken, Jr
Ryne Sandberg
Mike Schmidt
Ozzie Smith
Robin Yount

The cards measure 5x7 inches and are hand numbered to only 49!  I think I was pretty lucky to be able to pick this guy up for about 5 bucks.

The card has a very 1980's Fresh Prince of Bel-Air look to it. But a great oddball and I'm a lover of all things oddball.

  1. I think I missed this one in the daily to three-times-daily spamming that Topps undertook for my inbox! It really does look something like a late 1980s public service announcement on not doing drugs or staying in school or something.
