1970s baseball cards are largely considered to be the last of the vintage baseball cards. During the 1970s, more people were starting to recognize a collectible value in baseball cards. For most, though, it was still about having fun and connecting with their favorite players and teams, with little regard for the financial value of the cards themselves. Today, there are many valuable 1970s baseball cards, including a large selection of Hall of Famer rookie cards. Among the many Hall of Famers who made their cardboard debuts during the 1970s are Ozzie Smith, Mike Schmidt, George Brett, Robin Yount, Carlton Fisk, Dennis Eckersley, Dave Winfield and Paul Molitor.

In addition to the abundance of key rookie cards, condition is also a factor in determining value. Some sets hold up better than others. And then there's 1971 Topps - easily one of the most condition sensitive sets in the history of the hobby. Although the black borders look great, they don't hold up well. This has led to big premiums for cards that have sharp corners and edges. Another factor which contributes to the value of 1970's baseball cards is that up until 1974, Topps issued several different series over the course of a season. This led to many short prints that carry a premium still today.
