Robert Stephen Simon's Super Star Card Set


At some point in the '80s, I got a handful of cards from the 1986 TCMA Robert Stephen Simon set. These cards are awesome, if you've never had a chance to look at 'em before. I eventually want to grab a complete set of them, but it'll have to wait a bit as my weird-card-set-buying budget is officially tapped out for a while. In the meantime, feast your eyes on these beauties, which put a lot of the recent "art" card sets to shame.


Ebbets Field.


Jackie Robinson, for the three of you who can't identify him on sight.


Good Ol' Gil Hodges.


The Mick. One of a few Mantles in this set, if I'm not mistaken.

 

Warren Spahn. Love the high leg kick in this picture.

 

And, to finish off, here's Yaz.

As I mentioned above, I'm of course interested in getting more of these (trades are certainly welcome), but in the meantime, do any of you have any of these cards in your collections, and if so, which ones?
