Star Awesome Thrift Shop Discovery **Updated Scan
I job coach at a local thrift store (the company I work for owns it) and am always browsing after I am finished working. A few weeks ago a dozen or so white card-holder boxes of baseball cards came in and I looked through them very briefly--since I don't really collect baseball I wasn't too interested in a bunch of 80's and 90's baseball...

Well, today as I was extremely bored while there, I noticed a box that said "1980 Topps Complete Set".....well, I know enough about THAT set since Rickey Henderson was my first ever big $$ rookie card...

I started thumbing through the box, got a quarter of the way through, and voila...there it was just as crisp as could be...

My first ever *real* find...

Believe me, my scanner did not do that card justice. I will rescan when I have time.

Oh my here we go again more conflicting interests he was my first hero in baseball when I was a kid I adored him. On the serious note that one is fairly centered I would get it graded.

I updated the scan of the front. The card is SO crisp and clean, except for the small ding at the top edge right over the END in Henderson...

Beautiful card, I remember having one of those when I was a kid. It was all beat up though. Don't know what happened to it. Great find!

Do you have the Nolan Ryan in that box and is it for trade?

RE: Awesome Thrift Shop Discovery **Updated Scan
I think I do. PM me about it. The box says complete, but there are so many I haven't really had time to go through it.
