I like the ones from the 1980's because I have several and because I am hopeful that they will rise in value over the years.  I have some of the good rookies, though am missing some key rookie cards but have a Jerry Rice rookie card from 1986 Topps.  Some are in strong near mint or better condition and came fresh from unopened packs and boxes.  There are different ways of obtaining these cards, and of obtaining vintage cards.  I am familiar with Ebay auctions that are sold in big lots.  They feature a lot of vintage cards in a lot, and you get either cards of one year or of several mixed in.  Depending on how much you are willing to pay, you can get a great deal of cards and in many cases, get them fairly cheap compared to full book value.  We are going to focus on the value of 1985 Topps football cards in this article, and I believe they currently are well undervalued.

The best rookie card in the set, Marcus Allen, has a value of about $15 in price guides and I think a fair price for it is $5-$10 if you are buying one.  That is right around what I would value the key superstar cards such as Walter Payton and Joe Montana, though those would probably fetch $3 to $4.  The other rookie cards such as Gary Anderson ($3), Mike Singletary ($3.50), and Jim McMahon ($3) are pictured below and are great to add to Topps vintage football card collection.  Here are pictures of some of the 1983 Topps Football Cards in my collection, their value is best estimated based on current market information and knowledge of what collectors will pay (which hopefully increases in value in the future).

A complete set of Topps factory sealed cards ensures that the cards will be in the best shape and you possibly could even have gem mint cards in there which would bring a premium to their book value.  Some of my favorites include football card sets from the 1980's as well, and baseball ones from that era in factory sealed condition are worth more than hand collated sets.
