User Rating:

The 1971 Topps Baseball card set has two major claims to fame. First, the size of the set once again rewrote the record books delivering a checklist of 752 cards. The set is also widely considered to be the most condition-sensitive of all-time. Key rookies from the set include Bert Blyleven (#26), Don Baylor/Dusty Baker (#709), Steve Garvey (#341), Dave Concepcion (#14), George Foster (#276), and Ken Singleton (#16). Some of the Hall of Fame players populating the checklist include Willie Mays (#600), Roberto Clemente (#630), Reggie Jackson (#20), Ernie Banks (#525), and Nolan Ryan (#513) to name just a few, as the set is absolutely loaded with players immortalized in Cooperstown.

Subsets

Included in the 1971 Baseball card set are the following subsets:

  • League Leaders: #61-72
  • Playoff Highlights: #195-202
  • World Series Highlights: #327-332

Design

Although the design represents a vast improvement over the previous year, its major drawback is that it features black borders. This makes the cards extremely susceptible to displaying even minor damage to the cards, particularly in the form of edge wear, chipping and corner fraying. These condition traits make the 1971 Topps Baseball card set one of the most difficult to assemble in high-grade condition. As a result, singles that do receive high marks can command huge sums as vintage collectors aggressively compete for these rare gems.

In addition to the notorious black border, the front of the cards display the player's team nickname in capital letters along the top edge of the card. Below that, in lower-case lettering is the player's name and fielding position, which are separated by a dot. The cards also display a facsimile signature on the player photo. In game action photographs were used throughout the set's regular base card checklist. Up to this point, these types of photos had been reserved strictly for World Series and Playoff Highlights subsets. The inclusion of this type of photography on the base cards was met with delight by collectors, who after decades of posed player portraits, welcomed the change of pace. Perhaps, the most iconic of these action photos contained in the 1971 Topps Baseball card set is that of Thurman Munson. His card (#5) showcases a close play at home plate trying to tag out an Oakland Athletics base runner who is thought to be pitcher Chuck Dobson.

The backs of the 1971 Topps Baseball cards also feature photos of the players- this was a first for the Topps Company. Unfortunately, this came at the expense of being able to include season-by-season statistics for each player, as there was simply not enough space to include both. The lack of in-depth statistics was unpopular with collectors. As such, Topps did not produce another set that lacked seasonal player statistics for 21 years.

High Numbers

As is the case with most vintage Topps sets, the high-number cards are slightly more difficult to locate and thus are also more expensive. Produced in a total of seven series, the 1971 Topps Baseball card set was distributed in wax packs, rack packs, cello packs, and vending boxes. In addition to the seventh series of cards (#'s 644-752), the sixth series (#'s 524-643) also appears to have been printed in smaller quantities than the previous five. It is widely accepted amongst collectors that 44 cards in the final series were double printed. As a result, the remaining 66 singles from the series are considered to be short prints and usually command a premium.

Variations and Errors

Only ten known variations are considered to exist and most are attributed to color fading during the printing process. The cards most effected by this are the set's checklists. Missing copyright information, ink blotches and other non-glamorous issues constitute other reasons for the sets variations. However, none of these cards carry any sort of additional premium as a result.

Supplemental Releases

In 1971, Topps also issued a series called, Supers. Over-sized in dimension, the cards measure 3 1/8 by 5 1/4 inches. The checklist includes a total of 63 cards and are very similar to the regular 1971 Topps Baseball card set, lacking only the black borders. The cards are made of a thick layered cardboard and feature rounded corners. Key cards in the set are Roberto Clemente (#37), Willie Mays (#18), Carl Yastrzemski (#49), and Hank Aaron (#56). No other inserts or test issues were released that year.

The 1971 Topps Baseball Card set is wildly popular due to its player selection, key rookie cards, and the challenge that condition presents. Popular with set builders, the 1971 Topps release draws to it a wide range of collectors. The advent of card grading forever changed the value of this set due to the aforementioned condition issues. Collectors are urged to house each of the cards immediately upon acquisition in a penny sleeve, at the minimum, to avoid the dreaded edge wear the cards are known for exhibiting when stored in traditional card boxes. It should also be noted that due to the super premium higher grade cards can command, singles from the set are prone to doctoring via trimming. It's a good idea to have a ruler handy when examining cards from the set to insure that they have not been trimmed.

User Reviews

  1. Just too difficult to find cards in good collectable condition due to black borders. Least favorite set of the 70’s.

  2. Very handsome and frustrating set! Been trying to complete for 20 years now.

  3. Love the photo quality of the 1971 set. If not for the SPa I would collect this set
