User Rating:

After making what was arguably the most popular basketball card set of the 1970s, Topps really didn't seem to try very hard to improve on it. Instead, the company reverted to the standard card size and lowered the number of cards in the next year's set.

In addition to the player photo on the card front, a colored basketball icon in the lower left corner contains his position. Below the picture, a city name is placed inside a banner, with the team name following the perspective line as if it were an extension of that banner. The player's name appears in the lower right corner, just below the team name. Card backs feature a circle with a cartoon that says something about the player. Another circle at the top left corner has a card number inside it, while a black bar across the top includes his name. Vital stats appear below the name. Career statistics show up in the box below them, along with a short write-up.

One unusual feature of the set is the card stock. All 132 cards in the set can be found with either gray or white stock. While the white stock is less common and more appealing to collectors, there is not really any price difference between the two. The entire set would have fit on a single printing sheet, so it's likely that Topps changed the type of cardboard it used partway through the printing process.

There are no subsets due to the set's reduced size. All-Star players have a ring added around the basketball icon on their regular cards to identify them as members of the team. Key rookie cards in this set include Robert Parish, Darryl Dawkins, Adrian Dantley, John Lucas and Tom McMillen.
