Led by the rookie card for Mike Schmidt, 1973 Topps Baseball goes the simple route with design, especially in comparison to the previous year. Slightly less common than other 1970s releases, '73 Topps relies on large player photos.

1973 Topps Baseball consists of 660 cards. This represents a 127-card decrease from the 1972 Topps Baseball release. It also has the distinction of being the smallest Topps baseball card set of the 1970s and the last vintage Topps set to be released in a multiple series format. Also of note is that 1973 Topps marks the last active baseball card appearance for Willie Mays.

The 1973 Topps Baseball design delivers a fairly drastic change from the flamboyant offering of 1972. Using a much more conservative approach, the cards showcase a wide variety of photograph types that dominate much of the the card. The lower right corner of the card displays a silhouette of a player in one of several fielding positions and is set against a colored circle. The player's team, name and position can be found at the bottom of the card.

The card backs utilize a yellow and black color scheme. Biographical and statistical information share space with a cartoon and short write-up. The flow of the information on the back of the card is comprehensive without being cluttered or busy. This attribute is due to the vertical orientation of the card back, which Topps had not used in several years. The card number is set within the middle of a baseball graphic, making it easy to identify and read.

The main 1973 Topps Baseball design has always been met with mixed reaction by collectors, even to this day. Some prefer the simplicity, while others complain about the lack of color and uninspired photography.

1973 Topps Hank Aaron 4731973 Topps Baseball Team Checklist Phillies

While the checklist saw a decent size decrease, it did not really come at the expense of subset cards. 1973 Topps Baseball includes several regular subset options, including League Leaders (#61-68), Playoff/World Series Highlights (#201-210) and Boyhood Photos of the Stars (#341-346). Additionally, former greats were included in the All-Time Leaders subset (#471-478) and Rookie Stars (#601-616) were grouped together for once.

The Rookie Stars also differ from earlier sets because they are arranged by position rather than team. Finally, cards for entire coaching staffs can be found and there are also team checklist cards in addition to traditional team cards and series checklists. The blue team checklists are not numbered and feature replica signatures for the entire team.

1973 Topps Mike Schmidt

While the Hall of Fame rookie card for  Mike Schmidt's rookie card is the clear highlight of the checklist, several other players make their cardboard debut in 1973 Topps Baseball. This includes rookie cards for Goose Gossage, Bob Boone and Dwight Evans. Gossage in particular has seen a boost  in interest given his 2008 Hall of Fame induction.

Originally available in wax packs, rack packs, cello packs, and vending boxes, 1973 Topps Baseball was the last Topps release printed in and distributed by series. Although some regions were treated to the entire release at once, this is important because many collectors divide vintage and modern eras with the 1973 Topps Baseball card set for this reason. While this interpretation will always be debated, it is hard to argue that the 1973 release marked the end of a collecting era.

Cards from the final series (#529-660) are often times more difficult to find than those of previous series. Interest and values for the final series are also helped by the inclusion of the Mike Schmidt rookie card. Coincidentally, Schmidt shares the card with Ron Cey, another popular player. However, Cey's rookie card is found in 1972 Topps.

1973 Topps Baseball Box Pack

The 1973 Topps Baseball card set has minimal errors and variations, but none are particularly notable and they command no premium. Manager cards are the most common variation option, which centers around the background color.

The most common condition issue for the 1973 Topps Baseball set is centering. Notoriously mis-cut in all directions, high-grade versions of cards carry a premium as a result of this production flaw. One interesting thing to note is that while Topps experimented with other types of baseball related products in many years, no test issues or ancillary products were produced by the company in 1973. However, the Canadian O-Pee-Chee release of the main set was again issued in 1973.

  1. Rob. Do you have any idea which series contain which card numbers? i.e. Series one has cards #1-200.
    Thanks.
    Jason

  2. Great set, it can be as tough as the 1971 set in terms of the black border of the backs (but were more resilient than the glossy fronts of 71)
    Why no mention of the Blue Team Checklists that were distributed randomly in the last series? They are just as tough to find (maybe tougher) than the regular cards of the last series.
