1984 Topps - 792 Cards

Though I grew up with the O Pee Chee version of this set, the 1984 Topps card is one that brings back lots of nostalgia for me. There are 792 cards in this set, including a few different subsets.

The player cards have an inset closeup photo of the player on the bottom left and the team nickname displayed vertically on the left, above the photo. The player's name and position(s) appear below the main photo. The photos are a mixture of the standard poses and there are some action photos.

Each of the 26 teams has a Team Leaders card which indicates the leader in Batting Average and Earned Run Average. But beware because the card displays only qualified players (enough at bats or innings pitched) and so the Royals have Larry Gura and a 4.90 era on the front of theirs and the Reds have Ron Oester batting only .264.

There are 6 highlight cards at the front of the set with 3 of them featuring mutliple players.

Each of the 26 teams also has a card for their Manager which is usually a closeup of him looking past the camera, smiling or talking.

There are 8 League Leaders cards for 8 different stats that display the leader for both the American League and National League on each.

There's also 22 All-Star cards which is essentially a second card for each player. Some Topps sets display the "All-Star" banner on the regular player card but this set has a separate card indicating the league and the position of the player.

AL and NL Active Career Leaders for 7 different stats highlight the players who are active and leading that league in a particular stat. I believe that this is the only time that this subset has been used.

Of course, there are 6 checklist cards as well. The numbering of the cards has superstars having the #100,200,300 etc. The better players occupy card numbers ending in "5" and "0" and the rest is filled in with lesser known players. There is no indication or acknowledgements of rookies in this set, something that Topps veered away from starting in 1983.

Some cards of value in the set:

#490 Cal Ripken
#470 Nolan Ryan
#251 Tony Gwynn
#596 Ryne Sandberg
#300 Pete Rose
#400 Cal Ripken (All-Star)

Whenever we glance at the term the expression adore, with relations to an amorous romantic relationship with a further, although to be a emotion that may be engendered for those who have miltchmonkey a better connection yourself much too : or even being a a sense of bigger unity with the family or simply humanity - the idea develops into substantially more superior that most everyone wants in life is actually enjoy.

Peoples fears to do a partnership business coz bad history, It is also true that two minds can work much better than one (but only when both intellect matches as a blue print) Just when you believed having a puppy was simpler than an infant, he'll learn to pull those cupboard doors open! Think about installing locks or "child-proof" devicesMany of you may have at least come to believe that this is true for overt behaviors, but still struggle with applying it to thoughts

Rogers abruptly retired from soccer in mid-February after declaring he was gay and said he wanted to discover life away from the sport.

Earlier this week NBA free agent Jason Collins came out as gay in Sports Illustrated, the first active player on a major American professional sports team to do so.

Whether that was a factor in Roger's decision to reconsider retirement isn't known. Attempts to reach Rogers and his agent, Sean Higgins, for comment were unsuccessful.

Rogers' only comments came via his Twitter feed.

"Had a great first day back w/LA Galaxy," he wrote earlier this week. "Very appreciative that (L.A. coach) Bruce (Arena) is allowing me [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-Philadelphia-Phillies-6-Howard-Red-Jerseys-12/]2009 All Star Philadelphia Phillies 6 Howard Red Jerseys[/url] to train with the team to get back in shape."

The Fire have been in contact with Rogers and Higgins since acquiring his MLS rights in a Feb. 4 deal that included Dominic Oduro going to Columbus in exchange for Dilly Duka.

Rogers was a Crew fixture from 2007-11 and played overseas for [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-San-Diego-Padres-23-Gonzalez-Red-Jerseys-10/]2009 All Star San Diego Padres 23 Gonzalez Red Jerseys[/url] Leeds United in 2012-13 before his mid-February release. Rogers also has made 18 appearances with [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Cardinals-5-Albert-Pujols-Blue-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-69/]Cardinals 5 Albert Pujols Blue 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] U.S. national teams.

Rogers' MLS rights are a "tangible asset" if he signs a contract, a league official told the Tribune. He could play for the Fire or they could trade to him to another organization.

He has no compensatory value to the Fire if he opts to play overseas.

Fire coach Frank Klopas has said repeatedly he would welcome Rogers, and reaction from several Fire players has been positive.

"Yesterday I thought he was a very good player and I still think that today," Klopas said after Rogers' retirement announcement [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Dodgers-16-Ethier-Blue-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-39/]Dodgers 16 Ethier Blue 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] in [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Giants-55-Tim-Lincecum-Road-Cool-Base-Grey-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-79/]Giants 55 Tim Lincecum Road Cool Base Grey 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] February. "Should Robbie want to return to the game, we would be open to him."

Athletes publicly identified as gay or lesbian have become increasingly common in individual sports and women's professional leagues. But until Collins' announcement, the only admissions from male athletes have come from retired players.

Leon said the Fire would be patient as Rogers trains and considers his future.

"It's one step at a time," he said.
