One of the ugliest sets that Topps ever produced. It looks like one of those Kmart sets.
The Montana rookie saves this from being a total wreck.

This was the first cards i remember getting as i went to the grocery store in the little town im from. Ive had many sets thoughout the years and have sold them but always come back to this set. It is by far my favorite set with so many memories. I even loved that old hard stick of bubble gum and would keep sticks of it stored away as a kiddo.

I used to "borrow" change from my sister (a waitress) in the early 80s. Thanks to her, I have 2 complete 81 sets!
