Yes, Topps sets in the '80s were known to sometimes have missing/duplicate cards in them. I never understood the premium on unopened factory sets because of that. I'd much rather have a hand collated set that a) you could open the set and see for yourself any prominent cards, b) any grossly miscut or otherwise poor cards would probably be weeded out and c) you can actually look at and touch the cards without worrying about breaking some seal.

I always assume '80s Topps factory sets are not complete. I have no idea when they got their act together and significantly bumped up the chances that you'd actually get the full set.

Were the cards in order in the box?
Working Sets:
T206 SLers - Virginia League
1952 Topps - low numbers
1954 Bowman
1964 Topps Giants auto'd
