1980T New York Yankees

In the words of former Yankees Assistant to the Traveling Secretary, George Costanza, “You wanna get nuts, let’s get nuts!"  RetroCards has produced an exhaustive set featuring updates to the regular 1980 New York Yankees baseball set.

The Yankees finished 89-71 in 1979 (4th place) after dominating the A.L. from 1976 to 1978.  So why not start with an update set for one of those years?  Because RetroCards has a special affinity for the 1980 set and this is the first of several team set updates for that year.  Though the Yankees were a much hated team (especially by this writer), time has turned that hatred into admiration and thinking back to my pack buying days in 1980, it is very hard not to admire Reggie Jackson and the rest of the Bronx Bombers.  So this set is a tip-of-the-cap to a nostalgic time, when sitting in the bleachers in 1980 was a very different baseball experience than sitting in a luxury box today.
This set paints with a wide brush and includes players that contributed during the 1979 season (even some that were traded away from the Yankees during that season) as well as new arrivals for the 1980 season.  Special cards include Yankee Stadium/checklist, a 1979 draft prospect card featuring Otis Nixon, Don Mattingly, and John Elway, an "In Memoriam" card for the dearly departed Thurman Munson, a card commemorating the botched trade for Rod Carew, and even George Steinbrenner at his bloated best.  You even get a Burger King card (with alternate pose) of Tommy John!  For good measure we are throwing in a 1980 wrapper card for displaying purposes.
