Eighties Alphabetically - Circle K


The convenience store chain Circle K partnered with Topps in 1985 to create a set called Baseball's All Time Home Run Kings.  The set has a card for 33 of the 34 career home run leaders as of 1984, from Hank Aaron at 755 to Lee May with 354.  The missing player is Joe DiMaggio, who I suspect did not give his permission for inclusion in the set.


There are two Cubs on the list, Ernie Banks in 10th place with 512 and in 18th place with 426 was Billy Williams.  It's nice that the pictures on the cards include team logos, which were lacking on many others of this era.
