The Joy of a Completed Insert Set - 2019 Topps Series 1 '84 Topps

The next insert set to share from my 2019 Topps Series 1 set build is the tribute to 1984.  This set consists of 100 cards featuring current players and retired stars in the design of the 1984 Topps set.  This is the second year in a row Topps has thrown it back 35 years to celebrate a set after the 1983 tribute last year.  In the 2017 set, they stayed a bit more current going only 30 years back to 1987.  Previews for 2020 have recently showed that a 1985 tribute is in the works next year.

Once again I will share the fronts of all 100 cards and the back of card #1 then let the scans do the talking:

This set does a nice enough job as a tribute to the 1984 set, this set came out at a peak collecting time for me and I enjoy it.  I have never taken the steps to rank card designs but I would have guess this one would fall somewhere in the middle of the 80s for me.
