    I recently ripped a box of these as well, lots of fun. Though Nolan Ryan was ruined by gum.

    I always really liked that set. The bigger cards are a challenge to store but I think I have some extra 8 pocket pages laying around. I may need to hop on ebay and get a wax box.

    The Bowman Griffey rookie is one of his nicer looking cards.

    This has always been one of my all time favorite sets. I just think they are beautiful. I just wish they didnt have the signature on them. I am a ‘through the mail’ autograph collector and this would be absolutely perfect for that if they didnt have the pre-printed signature.

    I thought they were great also, but the whole Topps Bigs in 1988+ and the ’89 Bowmans were a fail due to the larger card size. Really difficult due to the larger size. That said, one of the nicest 80’s sets out there with really great pictures (quite rare for Topps of that era).
