A 1982 Topps Ryne Sandberg isn't a new idea. Heck, Topps even made one for their eTopps set a few years back. I decided I'd try my hand at one. I didn't realize that Ryno's first year was 1981. I figured that he debuted in 1982. That begs the question: Why didn't Topps make a card of him in 1982 or 1981? I may have to create a 1981 Topps Traded card. I will get some practice on the 1981 design, as the next card in Series 1 is a 1981 Topps Minnie Minoso.
