Here's a quick recap...
**The first box was the K Mart 25th Anniversary set from 1982
**The final set was the Toys R Us 1993 set
**A total of 28 different boxed sets were put out by Topps
**8 different retailers were involved....Ames, Circle K, KayBee, K Mart, Revco, Rite Aid, Toys R Us, and Woolworth.
**25 of the sets had a checklist of 33 cards
**2 sets had 44 cards
**The biggest set was the last one, Toys R Us 1993, with 100 cards
**The total number of cards from the 28 sets is 1011 cards
**38 of the cards were Cubs, which is barely 4%. I wasn't ambitious enough to check the team totals of the other 25 teams.
**Andre Dawson was the most popular Cub..11 of the 38 Cubs cards were of the Hawk
I've got a few tiles to show...
In addition to the retail sets, Topps also collaborated with three food companies, Drakes, Quaker Oats, and Purina to produce 33 card sets. I was able to hunt them down and I'll feature them in the next couple weeks.
