The Topps 1986 Baseball Card set is THE greatest set produced in the past 25 years due to the sheer number of players in this set who have gone on to be elected to the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. This is information on the 1986 supplemental series, called the Topps Traded set, which had one heck of a rookie class!
