Completely Red: 1986 Topps/Topps Traded

Black & Red is always a good combo. The 'REDS' emblazoned across the top could benefit from a little shrinkage, but such is life. There are some great photos (Tony Perez, Bo Diaz) and not so many posed shots that it upsets me. Plus a healthy pile of Pete Effing Rose. Nine cards of the newly-crowned hit king. Sweet. Oh wait, there was another Reds record breaker? Tony Perez became the oldest player ever to hit a grand slam? Well OK!

Also of note, people on eBay who are sure to point out that the first Pete Rose tribute card has a "1963 Topps Pete Rose RC" in the title can go to hell.


Cards - 39

RC's - 1 (Kurt Stillwell)

All Stars - 12 (Pete Rose, Eric Davis, John Franco, Tony Perez, Dave Concepcion, Buddy Bell, Tom Hume, Bo Diaz, Dave Parker, Tom Browning, Mario Soto, Kurt Stillwell)

Reds Hall of Famers - 7 (Tony Perez, Dave Concepcion, Mario Soto, Eric Davis, Tom Browning, Dave Parker, Ron Oester)
