1984-85 Star Franz Blazers Set - Summary 

Star produced two Franz bread issues with a Drexler card in each set from 1985 to 1986.  Note that many collectors sometimes confuse the two due to the similar photo.  Note that the 1985-86 card is less valuable and clearly says '1986 Collector's Issue' on the top of the card.  I often see the two mislabeled on eBay.
