Keeping on of the key features that made the previous year's set so popular, 1984 Topps Baseball is one of the more attractive sets of the decade. For the second-straight year, card fronts have both a large action shot and a smaller inset portrait at the bottom of the card. The biggest difference from 1983 Topps Baseball is that the portrait is inside a square, not a circle. Also making the 1984 Topps Baseball design distinct is the team name that runs in large block letters down the left side of the card. Where 1984 Topps Baseball stumbles a little is its checklist. While 1983 saw three Hall of Famers make their hobby debuts, this set has none. The 1984 Topps Baseball Don Mattingly rookie carries the set today. The set also has the company's first pack-inserted cards of Darryl Strawberry and Julio Franco. Both were in 1983 Topps Traded Baseball as well. The 1984 Topps Baseball checklist has 792 cards. Subsets include 1983 Highlights, League Leaders, Team Leaders, and All-Stars.
