User Rating:

Although 1985 Topps Football might not have quite the star power as the sets that came before and after, its bold design makes it one of the decade's standouts.

The 1985 Topps Football set has a 396-card checklist. The highlight is the Warren Moon NFL rookie card. Other rookies include Irving Fryar, Richard Dent and Mark Clayton. Obviously, it has nothing on the loaded 1984 Topps Football rookie crop. But that means 1985 has more affordable second-year cards of quarterback greats John Elway and Dan Marino.

The 1985 Topps Football design uses a horizontal design. Borders are black, which makes it somewhat difficult to find top-condition cards. Last names are in large block letters. First names are in a small overlapping box. A ribbon at the far side of the card has the team name. Topps branding on the front is limited to a small mention above the player photo done with text rather than the more traditional logo.

Wax packs have a sticker that was intended to preview the 1985 Topps NFL Sticker Yearbook. These stickers have a "Coming Soon" notation on the back. This is how they can be discerned from the regular stickers. Rack packs have one of 11 red-bordered Glossy insets. The final inserts are 16 box bottom cards. Four-card panels are on the bottom of wax boxes.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection. Ryan can be found on Twitter @tradercracks and Google+.
