Awesome '80s Sports

There was so much about '80s sports that was awesome. Here's a decade by decade look at my favorite teams and players. Click on the players name to see a picture, or a card, of that player.


"Air Coryell" in San Diego almost gave the Chargers, led by Dan Fouts and John Jefferson , a Super Bowl trip.


"Air Jordan" burst onto the scene, leading the North Carolina Tar Heels to the NCAA championship. Who would have known that this freshman would be the best basketball player to ever live?


"The Catch" proved to be the beginning of the San Francisco 49ers dynasty. Who can forget that wonderful Joe Montana to Dwight Clark catch? This was the beginning of my football fanatacism.

"Harvey's Wallbangers" put on quite a run, almost culminating in a World Series victory, but the St. Louis Cardinals managed to sneak out a 7 game victory.


"Iron Man" Cal Ripken Jr. and "Steady" Eddie Murray led the Baltimore Orioles to a World Series victory. It's still Cal's only trip to the World Series, and it was only his second season.


The Detroit Tigers started fast (35-5) and ended fast with a World Series victory over the San Diego Padres.

The Cubbies almost won! The Cubbies almost won! But not quite!!


"Showtime!" The Los Angeles Lakers, led by Ervin "Magic" Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and coached by Pat Riley, captured an NBA title.


The New York Mets, led by Dwight Gooden, Daryl Strawberry, Mookie Buckner.

William "the Fridge" Perry led the Chicago Bears and Walter Payton all the way to the Super Bowl Shuffle!

The Boston Celtics, led by Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parrish, won the NBA title.


The Lakers were at it again! Another title for Magic, Kareem, and Pat Riley. Nice hair, dude!


Orel Hershisher and Kirk Gibson led the LA Dodgers over the "Bash Brothers" and Dennis Eckersley of Oakland in a classic World Series.


The "Bash Brothers" and the rest of the Oakland A's captured the World Series in thrilling fashion over the San Francisco Giants. Unfortunately, there was a HUGE earthquake that disrupted the games and claimed many lives.
