What’s Buzz-worthy: This one seemed like a good idea because Little Buzz was all about watching this show back in the day — and probably bought a pack or two of these — but the number of car cards in this pack wasn’t that thrilling. In fact, it was a bummer and the scene when opening wrapper above seems apropos. The characters and personalities of The A-Team made a simple show work and you got a glimpse of that here, but crashed cars — yes, a staple of the show — just don’t make for entertaining cardboard. This pack had five car cards — and a checklist. (I pity the fool opening that pack the next time.) This is a tiny set — just 66 cards and 12 stickers — and it’s right in the Topps non-sport wheelhouse of the time. It just felt as flat as one of the tires on those wrecks based on this one pack. I should implement a new 12 in 12 rule to buy a couple packs to avoid duds on the old stuff. I’m sure this set is better than what I see here, but, then again, I haven’t watched any old episodes of the TV show lately — and I liked the recent movie reboot that bombed at the box office. Maybe it’s just me!
