1979 - First year MY team won! We are Family. Mad Dog, Crazy Horse, Scrap Iron, & Pops in the infield - Robinson, Moreno, and the Cobra patroling the pastures - and Ott and Nicosia keeping the plate clean. Then you throw in Blyleven, Candy-man, Kison, Bibby, and the Buggy Whip master Tekulve - and the season couldn't end better. I'm going for all 9's, don't know if I will upgrade the Ozzie PSA 8 or the Pete Rose PSA 8. This set was not my favorite until I started working on a Mint set. Now it kind of grows on a person, especially when you start looking at a centered Winfield, Molitor, & Landreaux. Moved into top 10 on May 4, 2009.

After working on this set actively for eight years, I decided have a non-graded set was adequate and have sold the PSA. This set can be really ugly, especially if you are looking at a complete set with all the miscuts, but a high grade well centered set can really be appreciated for the quality of the photographs and I really like the look of this set. But the cards were just in storage in a corner of the basement, and it is very difficult to display 727 cards.
