1985 Topps Baseball cards are one of the best Topps sets of the 1980's. The cards feature three key rookie cards and many hall of famers. The cards are still affordable for sets and a little more expensive for unopened boxes. This is a great set for your collection.
The three key rookie cards to the set are Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire, (his only major league rookie card as this year's card is an Olympic card subset within the set) and Kirby Puckett. There are also lesser expensive rookie cards including the once very popular Dwight Gooden rookie card. There are many hall of famers in the set including Nolan Ryan and there is a nice second year card of former all star and New York Yankees superstar Don Mattingly.
The complete set of these cards will cost you about $50 for a complete set if you get a good deal on it. You might even be able to get a little bit of a better deal if you shop for it on ebay or a place similar to that. Unopened wax boxes cost more and so do rack and cello boxes and cases. If you get a gem mint graded Roger Clemens or Mark McGwire rookie card, it can be worth at least several hundred dollars.
Adding a complete set of these cards to your collection, or holding on to your existing set in your collection is highly recommended. These cards have great rookie cards and the former all star and hall of fame selection is typical of the 1980's and includes many good cards. I currently am working on a set of these cards myself and am only missing between 20-30 common cards which I will be posting on this board a little later.
