1985 Topps is one of the most popular sets of the 80's due to the fact that it contains rookie cards of two of the most controversial players in baseball -- Roger Clemens and Mark McGwire. During the home run chase seasons of the late 90's, high graded versions of McGwire's rookie card sold for thousands of dollars. Now those same cards can be found for under $100. Why is this? This is because the popularity of players linked to performance enhancing drugs has diminished and the hopes of these cheaters entering the Hall of Fame is very slim.
I have a completed my 1985 Topps set years ago and it is in mint condition. I also have a sell sheet that I use as the cover. Here is that sell sheet:
Along with a copy of the sell sheet, I also have included a copy of the 1985 Topps wrapper and wax box in my set. Here are those:
