This 1985 Topps set arrives with virtually every card autographed, with a boat load of HOFers, stars and tough signatures. Even the Father & Son subset arrives entirely signed, minus Dizzy Trout, who was impossible, and Bill Kunkel, who died in May of 1985 and his son Jeff has written “Praise the Lord” under his image. The All-Stars and Olympics subsets arrive 100-percent complete. The Checklist cards are also signed by a variety of commissioners (Peter Ueberroth signed two, Bobby Bobby signed two and Topps’ executive Sy Berger signed two). The total numbers reveal that an impressive 768 of the 792 cards in the set are signed. Highlights include (in the order they appear in the set): Joe Morgan (Record Breaker), Pete Rose (RB), Nolan Ryan (RB), Don Sutton (RB), Cal Ripken Jr. (slabbed by PSA/DNA), George Brett (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Rickey Henderson, Jim Rice, Yogi Berra, Tug McGraw, Dennis Eckersley, Rufino Linares (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Dave Winfield, Roger Clemens (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Reggie Jackson, Gary Carter, Dan Quisenberry, Rod Carew, Sparky Anderson, Dick Howser (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Wade Boggs, Joe Morgan, Steve Carlton, Alan Wiggins (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Mark McGwire (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Andre Dawson, Joe Torre, Fernando Valenzuela, Ryne Sandberg, Tony LaRussa, Mike Schmidt, Kirby Puckett (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Pete Rose, Kirk Gibson, Pete Rose, Tom Lasorda, Ozzie Smith, Dwight Gooden, Rod Scurry (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Tony Gwynn, Tom Seaver, Tony Perez, Joe Carter, Donnie Moore (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Eddie Murray, Eddie Murray AS, George Brett AS, Cal Ripken Jr. AS, Dave Winfield AS, Rickey Henderson AS, Dan Quisenberry AS, Ryne Sandberg AS, Mike Schmidt AS, Ozzie Smith AS, Dale Murphy AS, Tony Gwynn AS, Gary Carter AS, Don Sutton, Bo Diaz (slabbed by PSA/DNA), Rollie Fingers, Nolan Ryan and Carlton Fisk.
