1984 Wichita Eagle-Beacon Card Checklist Part #10

I got my next set of microfilm in lightning speed this time around. There was pretty much nothing of interest in this update with the exception of Hockey Hall of Fame player Mike Bossy (Hockey HOF 1991) and Lance Parrish from the Detroit Tigers.  Overall, there were a number of unknown players, coaches, and college sports in this update.
