User Rating:

For the second straight year, Topps went with a tall boy format for its basketball set. However, they expanded the number of cards and made a second series for the first time ever.

Card fronts feature a picture of a player, either posed or a close-up head shot. A large basketball in the lower corner contains the player's name, team city and position. A white border surrounds the card, with rounded inner corners. Backs are horizontally oriented, with the player's name, position and vital stats at the top in a red-colored box. The card number appears inside a white circle to the left. A written biography and career stats appear, with a cartoon off to the right.

There were two series issued. The first series consisted of cards 1-110 and 22 of the cards were short-printed. The second series included cards 111-175, with the second series checklist (card #101) being continued to the second series printing sheet. As a result, that checklist card can be found with two color variations in its design.

For the first time, Topps included subsets with its basketball set. Cards 1-6 feature the top three leaders in various statistical categories from the previous season. Cards 106-115 feature the All-Star teams. Finally, the last eight cards in the set (168-175) recap the playoffs, with the final card showing the New York Knicks celebrating their victory.

The key rookies in this set include Pete Maravich, Pat Riley and Calvin Murphy.
