Oddball Set of the Month: 1984 Ralston Purina

The 1980’s and 1990’s produced some amazing cards.  Some have remained popular while others have been all but forgotten.  It’s those forgotten sets that I like to collect.

This month’s set is the 1984 Ralston Purina set.  Topps made this set available in boxes of cereal like Cookie-Crisp and Donkey Kong.  Specially marked boxes contained packs of three cards plus a checklist.  One of the things that makes this such a cool set is that out of the 33 cards, 19 of them are Hall of Famers.  Considering you can buy a complete set now for about $5, this set is tough to beat.
