psa case--makes me miss the good old days, fingers to
cardboard, know what I mean? 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle

1980 Topps Scoring Leaders

Gotta love this card--especially since the pieces
are still intact! 1980 Topps basketball scoring
leaders Larry Bird, Julius Erving, and Magic Johnson,
what an amazing combination. Subsets for this year
include Slam Dunk, All-Star, and Team Leaders, plus
the 16 posters that were issued as inserts folded
into the regular issue wax packs. They are printed
on thin white paper and feature one of 16 NBA teams
photos, using the same design as the regular cards,
and measuring 4 7⁄8 × 6 7⁄8 in.
