As a kid 1984 Topps was my favorite set. I loved the Strawberry and Mattingly rookies and always though the little square picture was super cool.
Lets see how it holds up.
There is nothing wrong with it as much as it’s just kinda there. The block letter team name is just OK and the color behind the little close up pictures is kind of distracting.
I wish I could say it’s the top, but it just isn’t.
The colors are nice and bold but they don’t always match up with the team colors. This wouldn’t mater but some use team colors and others don’t. For instance the Steelers cards have yellow and pink, it’s just too weird. I also don’t like the black box behind the team name.
The jaunty angle is OK, but not enough to pull it up to top spot status.
I also welcome back an actual Topps set after a two year absence.
Easily the top set of ’84.
