1989 Topps Record Breakers – SET IS COMPLETE!!!

1989 Topps Record Breakers – SET IS COMPLETE!!!

Well, that was nice and easy, huh?

And while it took very little effort to complete, I have to say that this is one of my favorites so far.  Why?  Because this specific subset features some of ’30-YOC’s’ favorite players – from Gary Carter to Wae Boggs to Orel Hershiser and of course, Mr. Andre Dawson!!!

And because this one includes so many of the players that I collect, I really only needed to grab the three ‘other’ guys because I already had doubles of the four that I have built collections of.

So, here it is in its completed state:

The 1989 Topps Record Breakers Set!

1989 Topps Record Breakers – Card #6 – Doug Jones

Headline:  “Jones Earns His 15th Straight Save”

The Story:  Cleveland, Ohio.  July 2, 1988 – Indians’ Doug Jones tonight earned his 15th consecutive save in a 10-7 win vs. Mariners, a major league record.  The former standard of 13 consecutive saves was established by Phillies’ Steve Bedosoian in 1987 season.

Oh Yeah Baby!!!

It’s time to piece together another subset from the 1980’s.  This one comes from the 1989 Topps set, and recalls the records that were broken in during the 1988 baseball season.

There are some great players and cards in this set and I cannot wait to get started showing it off for you.

Get ready, card #1 debuts next Monday!
