Rob,

Awesome!! Im so happy you pulled the trigger on that Sayers Card!

He was the greatest open field runner Ive ever seen.

Looks like your football collection is starting to shape up nicely!

The Greatest open Field runner
The Greatest modern day QB

Not a bad start at all!

John

Thanks John. Been searching hard for 81 commons in Mint condition. This is going to take years but is going to be a fun challenge.

Rob,

Guys like you are why I post and talk sports on this board and not that other one. You have the same passion for this hobby and I'm pretty sure you collect for the same reasons I do. It's a connection to my childhood and great memories. Awesome story man! Hope that 81 set comes out as nice as the firsts cards you posted.

Thank you Daryl........just got this one for 2 dollars for my 81 set.



Ive built a nice, simple little spreadsheet to keep track of my 1981 Footballs as this set is not going to be all graded (unless grading fees come down for bulk subs and i mean around 3 bucks a card...Lol). This 81 set has memories and with each card its like a walk down memory lane.

I spent an hour or so last night reading the back of each of my 81 Football cards (I only have aroud 60 or better)and tried to remember if I could read all that well back in 81 when i first bought these type cards. I probably didn't but I do remember putting them by teams and loved the cards with multiple players or the team action cards.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing. Give me a basket full for $2 a card and I'll have a crack out party. Great find Rob.

I just re-read the thread here and figured I would push this back into limelight to see how things were going with the 81 set.

I know you got some nice cards from the vending box Rob and would love to see some of them.

As well as any other progress on the set.


Happy Holidays!
John
