The Topps Sell Sheet / Photo Project — 1989

It seems like just yesterday. I was a 17 year old going to high school in Sherman, Texas. One day, I look in the local newspaper, the Sherman Democrat, and an advertisement caught my eye:

Sportscard Connection
Grand Opening Today

At that time, the only places I got my baseball cards from were grocery stores and trading with friends. I had never even heard of baseball card stores before. I went to this store on opening day and I was amazed! The store had stacks of 1989 Topps wax boxes for $15 each. I had never seen so many boxes at once! I bought a box and remember the store owner telling me that the most popular card to be on the lookout for was a Future Star card of Gregg Jeffries. I got one in my box. The owner just moved to Sherman from Tennessee and ended up being a great friend of mine. A lot of my time (and money) was spent at his card store and if it wasn't for the Sportscard Connection, my collection wouldn't be what it is today.

I finished my 1989 Topps set after buying several wax boxes. Unfortunately, I do not have a 1989 Topps sell sheet. How could i not have a sell sheet one of the most overproduced sets? It's a mystery. If you have one, please let me know! In the binder of my complete set, I have a copy of a 1989 Topps wrapper and wax box to remind me of what the wrappers and wax boxes looked like that year. Here are those:
