Welcome to another episode of "Flip This Card Set." Starring a near complete set of 1984 Donruss Champions oversized cards. Except I don't mean buy the set cheap and turn around and sell it for a profit. I just mean take something kind of worthless and turn it into something nice.
My initial thought when I came across these cards was "Meh." But then the small gears in your pal Napkin's brain starting squeaking to life and I saw some potential here. There are several things to like about this set. 1)The checklist is small (50 cards) and pretty strong. 2) The cards I am missing are pretty cheap on sportlots.com. 3) Most of the players in the set are still living.
My thinking is these would be great for autographs on cards of the living players in the set which is probably 90% of the checklist. I think if I could complete the set, get 15-20 autographed TTM and put them in nice pages, this could be a pretty special part of my collection.
I am kind of excited about this. I'll start sending out a few cards next week!
