This was my 1st pack ever opened. Pretty sure mom got them for me at local Publix supermarket... the good old days.

When this first came out, I thought it was bland. As the years went by, I have come to appreciate it more. 7/10.

First pack of cards I bought. Cello packs from Schnucks. Awesome design. Had a stack of maybe 500 by the time 1987 came out. I seem to recall about half of them were Storm Davis or Jesse Orosco.

First pack of cards I remember buying. Scored a Vince Coleman rookie and a Reggie Jackson. Still have the Jackson but in really rough shape, as a 7 year old kid, I had no clue about sharp corners.

Bought this pack at a card show my Dad took me to, where Ozzie Smith was signing Autographs for $10. Missed out on that one.

Still love this set, for sentimental reasons, but still dig the design.

Note: The send-in Glossy All-Stars have parallel sets with Light Gray Backs and White Backs.

I have proof of both sets.

My first card purchases, from Fecteau's Country Store in Epping NH. 2 bucks for five packs. They were promptly encased in a rubber band and stuck in a pocket to show my friends at recess. Third grade, if I remember correctly.

Picked up a second complete base set of the 86 topps getting ready to build my binder.IF I was to build this set as a complete PSA set through a guy I know with his pricing to send the cards in little at a time it would coast me over time up to $14,000 dollars, you think it would ever sell then.

Although I think I opened a few packs of 1985 Topps, it was the 1986 packs that REALLY got me into collecting. I once took a bus trip with our church youth group, and we stopped at a Toys R Us, and I bought all the rack packs I could afford. STILL a great memory, and although there aren't a boatload of rookies, the 1986 set will always be great nostalgia for me.

Most of my box bottom cards are still 4 card panels.

First pack of cards I ever bought. Hard earned chore money nabbed me a pack a week that summer. Kept the poor guy's in the sock drawer. Live and learn...

This set has really grown on me over the years. The card designs just look classic.

the first set that I truly tried to complete through wax packs and trades (preinternet days) I never did complete it as I bought tons of packs and still was missing about 20-25 cards. beautiful set! loved the pete rose specials!

Very tough to get a whole box bottom panel in mint condition. Bottoms tend to have scratches from sliding and creases simply because it is a box bottom, a container.

This was the first set of cards (aside from the Quaker Granola from the same year) that I actively collected. I still like the design with the team name "banner" over the picture. It made storing/sorting the cards so much easier. Lots of good memories with this set.

Nice set of cards, it was a good year

1986 was a awesome year! Thank you for this beautiful site. It is as if you read my mind.

I use your site more than the others. Nice way of getting info. For ex: I have a 1977 card that didnt have a printed back which is where info of the player and card is. So, naturally I came to your site.

Amazing what you guys have done here. Its like walking into a baseball card museum! LOVE IT!

I'm pretty sure that the 1986 Topps cards were the first trading cards I got. I was 7 at the time but I remember my parents buying me packs of this set.

1986 Topps was the first set I had. I know this set inside and out.

My first set that I really remember heavily collecting. Today worthless, but picture/player wise it had value
