Now that my Eric Davis player collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.

Card #1 – 1988 Topps Glossy All-Star Send-In

DAVIS FAB 1

As you all know, my preference is to collect the players that impacted my love for the game during my youth.  That also means celebrating the baseball cards from that time.

One of the unique things that Topps did back in the 1980 was offer the chance to obtain limited edition cards and sets of cards that could only be purchased directly through them.  Tagged as ‘Send-In’ sets, you had to send in wrappers from the packs you opened as well as a small shipping and handling fee for the cards – but it was well worth it.

The Send-In cards offered a very unique look for a Topps baseball card.  They actually had a postcard vibe to them with their glossy fronts and cardboard-textured backs.  And while the design of the backs were extremely limited, the fronts were superb!!!

Great images, clear photos, and bright colors!!!
