1984 Nestle #232

















Card Review: 9.3  this card is identical to the '84 Topps but for the "Nestle" logo on the front and back.  There is also what appears to be a coma before "Tim" along the top of the card back that isn't present on the regular 1984 Topps.  I know very little about this Nestle set, how it was packaged, sold, distributed, and everything else about it's origin is a mystery to me.

Fun Facts: *These "Nestle" variants tend to be worth about 4x as much as their Topps counterparts.
*Tim was named an All-Star for the 1st time in '84
*Tim was briefly team-mates with Pete Rose in '84

Number of this card in my collection: 77
2014 update: 79
