Team Set Tuesday: Green Bay Packers 1985 Topps Team Set

Well, another Tuesday has come and gone and I forgot to post the new Team Set Tuesday post. It was going to be the 1985 Topps Football Green Bay Packers set and so here it is a day late. After having Bart Starr as the coach for nine seasons they turned to another Packer legend, Forrest Gregg, to take the helm and he led them to moderate success. They finished 8-8 overall and finished second in the Central Division behind the Bears.

I really like the 1985 Topps design and it might be my favorite all-time football set [my favorite baseball set is the 1971 Topps set which is also black-bordered...I'm sensing a theme]. I particularly like the Ezra Johnson card because you don't see a lot of players with their helmet on looking directly into the camera. They are generally looking off to the side or at an angle.
