Million Dollar Question – ‘When I Say 1987 Topps, You Think What Card’???
As a 12-year old enterprising kid, I had a few sources of income. I cut lawns. I washed cars. I power-washed porches and patios.
While I was making just small amounts of money doing these odd jobs, I was making more than most 12-year olds.
And the thing that I invested in during that time?
At the time, I was both a set builder and player collector. So, as I dove deep into the 1987 Topps release, I really had fun building both the full set numerous times and adding pages and pages of my favorite player’s cards to my PC’s.
My favorite card from the set? The one that kept me focused and consumed?
The Bo Jackson ‘Future Stars’ card.
I had stacks and stacks of these cards – at least 4-5 full pages of them, front and back.
Bo had an aura around him that few have achieved since. He was captivating due to his pure athletic ability. And he was still so raw as a player that he often carried a tag of ‘What If’ with him.
And now, I ask you – ‘When I Say 1987 Topps, You Think What Card’???
I cannot wait to read your answers to this one!!
