We must be around the same age. I think everyone I knew had the 1987 Topps set with those wood panel borders. I missed out on a lot of middle school math class because I was desperate to trade for as many Jose Canesco and Mark McGwire cards as possible. The Eric Davis card from that year - the one where he is holding the ball - is my favorite all time card for some reason, perhaps because it holds so many fond memories.
