For the third straight year, 1978-79 Topps Hockey featured a 264-card base set. Once again, they featured a white-bordered design and the same information on the fronts that the previous years' sets had. At the same time, the subsets were recognizable to long-time collectors. As the monopoly card manufacturer, Topps had definitely hit its stride. Some found it familiar, but others found it pedestrian.

1978-79 Topps Hockey cards feature a player photo that is either posed or taken during a game. All the rest of the information appears at the top of the card. In the upper left corner is a team logo and position. The team name is just outside, in its one curved box. That player's name runs across the top of the card, above the photo. The backs are oriented vertically, with a box of the player's vital stats running across the top. The card number appears inside a skate icon, with the player's name beside it. Another box contains year-by-year statistics, including minor league seasons, and a short biography if there was any empty space. At the bottom is a facsimile autograph, something that had been missing from Topps' base hockey sets since its inaugural 1954-55 issue.

All-Stars have a bar added to their base cards underneath their names which identify to which team they were named. The first five cards in the set feature highlights from the previous NHL season. League leaders in several categories appear on cards 63 through 70. Team pictures appear on cards 192 through 208 and are arranged alphabetically by city. The final three cards recap the semifinal series and Stanley Cup Finals.

The key card in 1978-79 Topps Hockey is Mike Bossy's rookie. Other notable rookies in the set include Bernie Federko and Doug Wilson.
