Without reading all thirty something pages of this thread to seek out an answer, can someone tell me why in heck the 1987 set is so popular in the autographs world?

(Did I already ask this question?? It's possible, because whenever I see the thread, it's the first thing that comes to mind.)

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

For me personally, it is because it was the first set I collected as a kid. Opening hundreds of wax packs for Pete Incaviglia's, Todd Worrell's, and Wally Joyner.

Seriously though, I only started it less than two years after I saw someone else's quest and it has been a nice side project.......and relatively affordable.

The "through the mail" aspect of getting a large portion of them has been an enjoyable part of it as well.

All those aspects, plus an appealing retro design.

I guess for me it was just something that happened in 2015. I had previously had about 10 signed in the set, but I had just about the complete set, and I was nostalgic for it because even though I wasn't alive in 1987, I do remember buying some packs as an adolescent and remembering some cards in that set - Otis Nixon, Jim Morrison, Bob James, Thad Bosley, Rance Mulliniks, Tracy Jones, I can't remember who else. I do remember thinking the set design was very sweet and it made me nostalgic for a decade I didn't live a single day in and I just thought it was so cool with the way it looked.

There are also plenty of terrific signers from that set. While Nixon isn't one of them, I remember him from Ken Griffey Baseball on the N64 and was pretty taken aback that he was around back then.

Finally a success. It has been awhile since I have been getting any returns. Sent this one to Yankee stadium a couple of weeks ago.

I saw Pena had been signing lately.

I recently took a job out of state, so the next time I go back home I should have some successes from the set. I certainly haven't given up on it. It's just that I don't have my TTM stuff delivered out here.

Second chance success. For some reason the card I sent to him last year never came back. This one took 2 weeks.
