On the Radar - 1988-89 Topps Hockey

One of my major collecting goals since I got back into the hobby has been to collect every Topps hockey set from the 1980's, from the 1980-81 set through the 1989-90 set. I have a tendency to get sidetracked and bounce all over the place though, so I'm only just now getting to a point where I have everything organized. Working my way backwards, I've already completed the 1989-90 Topps set. Next up would be the 1988-89 set:

The nice thing about the Topps sets from this decade is the manageable size of each set, with this one clocking in at 198 cards. Although I've had some of the bigger cards for quite some time (Gretzky, Lemieux, Hull rookie...), I had very few cards from this set until I picked up a huge stack of commons and semi-stars at the local hobby shop a while back.

I've finally got everything sorted out and into pages and my Want List is now up to date. I'm down to around 30 cards needed to finish the set. If anyone has any of the following available for trade please let me know!

23, 25, 26, 35, 49, 61, 73, 82,
102, 103, 104, 113, 118, 119, 123, 124, 130, 134, 141, 145, 147, 157, 160, 161, 166, 167, 171, 176, 179, 193

I've also got a healthy stack of doubles on the odd chance that anyone's looking to get started on a 22-year-old Topps hockey set!

Colin, thanks for the comment, I'd love to trade you for those! That would be a huge help. I have 84-85 completed but definitely need some 85-86 and 86-87 needs. Drop me a line at shanediaz82 at yahoo dot com.

I was working on the decade of the 80s for OPC. But I got sidetracked when I moved to the Arctic about 6 years ago. I still only need 13 cards to finish the decade.
