Set Collection: 1982 Topps

Using my credit at Check Out My Cards, I also picked up the cards I needed to complete my 1982 Topps set. Back in the day, I never really came close to completing this set. In fact, I bought as many packs of 82 Donruss as I did Topps. Since I got back into collecting, I’ve slowly brought this set to near completion thanks to a number of trades. Like the 1985 set, I was lacking some pretty good baseball players. Four guys in the Hall of Fame and one who sure as hell belongs there. Unlike with the players I was missing from 1985, I like four of these players a lot, with only Yaz leaving me cold. (I rode on a plane with Rod Carew once a few years ago. He rates behind Bob Newhart and Stevie Wonder, and ahead of Little Richard and many of the WCW wrestlers for the coolest people I’ve seen on airplanes.)
