Request to please add a 1980 Topps Baseball HOF set. Thanks, Erik
Hi! I will try to get this set up as soon as possible. As we are extremely busy right before The National, it would help if you can email me a list of the players and card numbers. If you can't, I will still try to get it done as time permits.
Just a note of thanks for adding my son Jeff Obermeyer's T212 OBAK 175 subjects complete set to the SGC Registry. Jeff worked on completing this set for many years and I took it upon myself to have it SGC graded when Jeff decided that he wanted me to proceed with selling it. Now I'm getting hooked on it
Jeff was mentored on learning much about this card issue, and was assisted greatly in building the set, by Mark Macrae who deserves a tip of this oldtimer's cap from me. Jeff published a definitive article on this card issue in VCBC #26
SGC has 2 complete sets in the Registry, and PSA has none.... now that's an obscure card issue
There are 35 different "Slogans" possible in the center of the card backs, but for any specific player only a few Slogans may be possible and some slogans may be rarer than others. The research done on this so far is limited by the low quantity of cards made available for sampling.
Re the Registry some of the players in this set are "Power Rated" as 2.00 indicating relative scarcity; relative popularity of the player; and/or "star power" I assume. I'd love to see insights from the appropriate SGC pro regarding why those specific cards received the higher Power Ratings.
