********************

This is an excellent issue for folks to remember and study US history and it's heroes.

I like the usage of solid Topps designs to incorporate the Heroes of America. The chrome cards look great and seem to be much thicker than normal chrome cards. I also like the numbering of the chrome / refractor parallels.

The card with the uniform of the paratrooper from WW11 is twice as thick as the FDR card... it is not numbered and I don't know the significance of the thickness - if any.

I also like the fact that one receives a complete base set - 1-125 in the box.

Overall grade A

Go buy several boxes and send the Republican Presidents to me!!

I can generally take or leave these sets, but they keep using my 80s designs -- I need the 86/87/88/89 designs. (Just regulars, not chromes.)

Could use the Larry Bird "Heroes of Sport" if you pulled that also.
