Completely Red: 1989 Topps/Topps Traded

Pretty standard Topps stuff here. I have decent memories of the set. Had a ton of em, of course. I had started collecting in '91, so these were old news by then. By '93 you could get a shoebox full of 'em at a flea market for a few bucks. I might've had a complete set and not known it. Or at the very least, a complete set minus the stars. I really like the Leaders subset. I got a kick out of trying to guess which players were the stat leaders on each team. My favorite from the Reds set is the Sabo ASR, followed closely behind by Kent Tekulve lookin' fly in those shades.

  1. I love this set. I love Larkin and Esasky both have that teal-shirted guy in the background, I love Danny Jackson stretching on his All-Star card, I love Treadway's angelic batting helmet, and I lurve that Pete Rose manager card above all. An underrated set for sure.
