A quick monetary note about the disparity in price between these 2 sets. The Reggie Jackson RC, in NrMT condition, books for 2.5 times more than the entire 1980 set. I have a feeling that even though this should be a lopsided vote, the younger voters that have been contributing may show a little love for the '80T set.
Tale of the tape:
- Set Size: 1980 has 726 cards. 1969 has 598 cards
- Key RCs: 1980 Rickey Henderson, Dave Stieb 1969 Reggie Jackson, Rollie Fingers
- Cost of complete set in NM condition: 1980 $120 1969 $3000
- Number of cards with high book at $100 or more: 1980: 0 1969: 4
The 1980 blog has been inactive for just over two years now, while the 1969 blog is still running strong. Jim from Downingtown also writes this blog; I checked and there was no post for Dick Dietz to link to (yet).
I appreciate all the votes that I've received so far, I'm hoping that the total weekly votes will start hitting the mid 20's soon.
Thanks for reading, and for voting, Robert
