1986 Topps Project

The 1986 Topps set has always and will always be my favorite baseball set.  I grew up spending the weekdays in the summer with my grandparents out on their farm. In the summer of 1986, I was 8 years old and helped my grandparents with chores out in the fields. I also helped out with my grandmother's sister who lived with them. She had been in an accident before I was even born and couldn't live on her own. Every Wednesday morning, we would go to town to get groceries and other necessities. My great-aunt knew I liked baseball and slid a pack of 1986 Topps into her grocery cart at the store one day. When we returned home, she surprised me with them. To say I was excited would be an understatement. Every week from then on, my great-aunt would buy me a couple of packs and I would save all my money through the week and get packs of my own. It wasn't too long until I had amassed quite a collection of 1986 Topps and then, the 87's came out.... My 86 Topp
