Before I moved last year, I bought a three box lot of Topps stickers ('81-83) on eBay. This purchase was made in the hopes that it would quell my strong urge, at the time, to open a box of something.
So, did it work? No. Did I end up getting any real enjoyment out of them? Not really. Which is evidenced by the fact that now, over a year later, a box and a half are still unopened. The good news is, even with the shipping, they were only around $5 a box. So it's not like they me back all that much.
Ok, let's move past the homicidal child, and get to the actual contents of the package:
And one of the backs:
I think part of the reason why I haven't gotten too much joy out of these is that they don't seem to be as much fun without the accompanying album to stick them in. There was something very satisfying about attempting to complete those sticker albums, although thinking back on it, I don't know if I ever actually completed one.
So if anyone reading this wants any particular players or teams from the 1981-83 sets, there yours for the taking, with nothing expected in return.
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my pack.
