1986 Topps Football is another in a string of strong mid-80s gridiron sets. It has a distinct design and a killer checklist, which is about all collectors could expect at a time that wasn't all about the inserts and autographs.

The 1986 Topps Football set has 396 cards, the standard for the time. The layout immediately stands out thanks to its green borders and white stripes -- like a football field. Player photos are placed inside a thin yellow inner border. The nameplate is at the bottom of the card. A horizontal bar has the player's name on one side and position on the other. The team name is in a separate overlapping diagonal bar.

Card backs are rather intricate thanks to busy background drawings. The main text are is a tilted rectangular area. It includes vital stats on one side, and stats and notes on the other.

The key card in 1986 Topps Football is the Jerry Rice rookie card. The checklist also includes cards from former USFL players who moved to the NFL. Steve Young and Reggie White both have their first NFL rookie cards. However they also appeared in 1984 Topps USFL. As a result, their NFL rookie cards aren't held in quite the same regard on the secondary market. Other rookies in the set include Bruce Smith, Boomer Esiason and Andre Reed.

1986 Topps Football has a pair of insert sets, both of which are very basic. Four Box Bottoms aren't actually box bottoms. Rather, they were attached to the side of each box. Collectors had to cut them out. Cards feature each of the 1985 division winner. 1000 Yard Club highlights the top rushers of 1985. Inserted one per pack, the set has 26 cards.

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+.
