Fave Five -- 1981 Topps
I picked up a nearly complete set of 1981 Topps base cards this past week and I thought a Fave Five was in order.
FIVE -- A boxer, a basketballer, and a singer
FOUR -- Spectacles
THREE -- Coloradoans
ONE -- Mustaches
I bought the lot of cards for a couple of reasons. First, 1981 was a great year for mustaches, as you can see in the above scans. I filled in a handful of gaps in my Mustache Set with some 1981 cards. Second, I was born in 1981 and I'd really like to have the complete base set to commemorate my birth year. I've added the missing cards to my Want List and would love to make some trades to complete the set. Finally, I picked up the lot on the cheap, which is always a bonus.
