    I need a high res scan of one of the 80's topps baseball cards with the cheesy woodgrain. Looking for like more than 800 pixels tall.
    Could someone scan a card for me and email it to me? The player is unimportant, I just want the look of the card (will be cropping the player).

    THANKS!

    I wish I had a scanner because I could do it Vince. I have plenty of them.

    BTW, those cards are from the 1987 series.

    Anyone have any ideas where I might find a decent size scan online? I tried some collector pages and couldn't find anyhting but small, really crappy compressed jpgs.

    Marvin,


    Found that a couple hours ago-- Once I knew exactly what year it made ebay browsing a bit easier... Worked perfect. Thanks for the tip.

    Oh, how those '87 Topps cards take me back. I was a big-time card collector back then. I bought millions of packs and would scour toy stores constantly looking for rack packs with stars or rookies showing. I still have many unopened rack packs from '87 because at the time, it looked to be a great year for rookies. I even have an unopened six-box rack pack case. Unfortunately, only a few of the rookies from '87 panned out. Besides that, the cards aren't worth too much because they were mass-produced. The Fleer and Donruss cards from '87 are more desirable.

    Vince,
    I'm going home to NJ this weekend and can grab a common card or two and throw them in an envelope if it helps.

    I don't have a scanner but I do have plenty of 1987 Topps (and other worthless baseball cards from my childhood.)

    Thats okay guys- I think I found something that will work (and it is for a short film I'm turning in tomorrow).

    Appreciate the thought!

    I have about $5000 worth of cards I bought back in 1991 that are worth about $50 now. They are NOT a good investment!

    Yeah, the 1987 Topps was not a very good set, the 1987 Fleer is a pretty nice looking card though.

    Boy did the baseball card business go in the tank; good thing I sold my collection in 1992 to buy a 1991 Yamaha YSR 50.

    Your cards did better than my Lucent stock.

    I was a big collector in the late 80's and early 90's. I stopped when all those new sets and fancy-looking cards started to appear.

    Topps was the one with a stick of gum, right?
