Fleer on the other hand went downhill in 1982. Their 1981 cards were fairly nice for a new entry and they had some really good photos - Fernando, Reggie, George Foster, etc. 1982 however was pretty bad with fuzzy photos, bad color and just overall poor quality.

And Topps just kept chugging along, much like the Big 3 Detroit automakers in the mid to late 1970's and into the 80's.

At the time, for a couple of years, I could tell you the name of every card given the photo.
I LOVE the comparison of Topps to the Big 3! Perfect!
