1987 Topps Football isn't going to win ay awards for rarity. However, it's an attractive set that boasts the first NFL cards of a pair of the era's top quarterbacks.

The 1987 Topps Football checklist has 396 cards. Key rookie cards include Jim Kelly, Doug Flutie and Randall Cunningham. For Kelly and Flutie, these aren't their first Topps cards, though. Kelly appears in 1984 Topps USFL while Flutie is in 1985 Topps USFL. Other highlights in the set include second-year cards from a pair of 49ers legends, Jerry Rice and Steve Young.

1987 Topps Football Randall Cuningham RC Base card fronts have a clean design. The standout feature is a pair of flags that go across the top. Color coded according to the team, these flags act as a nameplate as well as providing space for the player's team and position. Backs are done on a dull red stock. Player vitals are listed on the left side. Stats are in a shield that takes up the majority of the space.

Every pack of 1987 Topps Football has one of 24 different glossy 1000 Yard Club cards that spotlight players who reached the rushing or receiving plateau. The set also has 16 Box Bottom cards. Four were printed on the underside of each box.

Wax boxes come with 36 packs, each holding 15 base cards and one 1000 Yard Club insert. There are also 25-card rack packs and 29-card cello packs. This was also the first year that a factory football set was offered.

Like most sets from the late-1980s, 1987 Topps is readily available still today. This has impacted values as even the top cards can be found ungraded for just a few dollars.

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.
