At Topps, there's no shortage of history. 2013 Topps 75th Anniversary celebrates the company's diamond anniversary with an eclectic checklist that offers a look at more than 100 different entertainment sets.

The hobby-only release includes three autographs and one stamped buyback per box.

2013 Topps 75th Anniversary Set Details

The 2013 Topps 75th Anniversary base set has 100 cards. Each is from a different set in the company's history. Collectors can relive classic TV shows, movies, historical events, music and more. Len Brown, a retired creative director who worked at Topps for more than 40 years, is helping pick the images as well as writing card backs. It's a pop culture potpourri that ranges from Davy Crockett to Batman to ALF. Of course, Topps properties like Garbage Pail Kids, Wacky Packages and Mars Attacks also appear. For many, it acts as an opportunity to learn a little more about some sets they may have missed originally. 2013 Topps 75th also gives a glimpse of how the hobby has evolved.

Parallels are part of that evolution and 2013 Topps 75th Anniversary has several of them. Rainbow Foil cards fall one per pack. Diamond Anniversary cards are limited to 75 copies each. Modern Gloss cards have just ten copies. These are intended to present old cards as they might have looked if they were printed today. Finally, there are 400 total Printing Plates.

Mini Cards is an eight-card insert that showcases some of the smaller-sized sets Topps has made through the years. Test Issue looks are eight sets that were in the works but never received a full national release.

2013 Topps 75th Product Review

Reviewed by Kerwin Leong

Good: Nostalgic entertainment product with movies, television shows, and historical events all represented. Test issue cards bring to light rarely seen cards. Each box should have a complete set. Potential for Sylvester Stallone autographs. Three autographs per box.

Bad: Sticker autographs. Very small autograph checklist given the number of autographs per box. Only a few well-known signers included.

The Bottom Line: 2013 Topps 75th Anniversary is a great product for entertainment collectors. The nostalgic feel of the cards will make you reminisce with a trip down memory lane with pop culture history, historical events, and shows you watched as a child. I had a blast reading the cards about The Simpsons, The A-Team, Masters of the Universe, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Topps did a great job showcasing their 75 years of products.

Staff Rating:
4.3 / 5.0

Card Design: 4.5/5.0

The base card design varies for each of the 100 cards in the set. Since each card represents a different set from Topps’ product history, no two cards share the same design, color, symmetry, or image. Similar to Topps Heritage, the card surface is rough to emphasize the old school retro nostalgic aspect of the set.

Every pack has a parallel card. The Diamond Anniversary parallels look the nicest with the added sparkle. Besides autographs and parallels, there are only two inserts: Mini Cards and Test Issue. The Test Issue insert is a cool concept, showcasing products that were produced but never released to the general public in large quantities. I really like how this was included as most companies would probably destroy the printing plates and hide the unreleased sets in a vault. Plus, it was fun to read about a set called Superman in the Jungle.

Topps also included at least one Buyback card per box. It is a card from the original product release but with a gold Topps 75th anniversary logo on there.

The base autographs are stickers and have too much empty white space. Basically, there is a mini card on the top half of the card with the sticker signature on the bottom. I understand the consistency of having the autograph set all look similar, but too much empty space on a card is not very appealing.

Checklist: 3.5/5.0

The base set has 100 cards. Each card represents a different set that Topps released in their company history. There are many cartoons, television shows, movies, and historical events that are included.
The Mini cards and Test Issue inserts only have eight cards each, making it a very easy to complete the whole set.

The base autograph checklist lacks big-name signers, but is also very easy to complete with only 22 cards. Signers include Roger Moore, Dawn Wells, Karen Allen, and Corey Feldman. It's not the greatest lineup of signatures to promote a product, but some nice ones to have in a collection. The Cut Signatures are extremely rare but include Bob Hope, Farrah Fawcett, and Charlton Heston. Sylvester Stallone is also included in a signed Buyback.

Value: 4.0/5.0

2013 Topps 75th Anniversary is an affordable mid-range product that gives you three autographs. You should also get a complete base set too. The true value of these cards will not be seen on the secondary market. It's the nostalgic trip that makes you remember all the things you watched as a child. It is a price that cannot be measured. This product can also make for a great educational tool for older collectors to teach their kids and grandkids about pop culture history.

The Fun Factor: 5.0/5.0

Overall, this was a very fun box to break. I had a blast reading the card backs to many of my favorite cartoons and television shows I watched as a child. The base set covers a lot of products that Topps produced in their first 75 years. This product is very similar to 2011 Topps American Pie, which is another fantastic product. It would be great if Topps released similar products every year.

User Reviews

Love the nostalgic feeling of seeing older cards reprinted. The fact you can actually get the ORIGINAL via the “buy back” stamp, is awesome! One of the Buy Backs is limited to 10 only of Robin Williams(for sale). I own 3 buy backs, and several autographs, love it.

Topps have not been around for 75 years so how can they do a 75th anniversary card buy back set.topps have only been round for 64years. So I think that this cards that have topps 75th on them should be era cards miss prints.can any one give me a write back and let me know about this problem.

Just opened a box–Lost in space autos(2)–Mary-ann,Dawn Wells from Gilligans Island–And quite possible a great Buyback Luke Skywalker from Return Jedi–Also got Battlestar Gallactica buyback–so 2 in box–buybacks marked with gold stamp instead of silver.Also got 2 Test cards in box—all in all nice Bust–But I did get box cheap at show so that helps!!

Your best trick for looking for the buyback cards is to look at the copyright date on the back of the cards.

Nevermind-I see that the card has a GOLD stamp on it, rather than the silver stamp, making it my buyback card (from ’96).

I can’t seem to find my Buyback card, either. I do have a chrome Star Wars #25…has anyone else seen this one?

Al Hathaway
Al Hathaway

Thanks. But there is no way for me to prove that it came from a pack of 75th Anniversary and not a pack of 1991 Desert Storm cards because there is no stamp.

Al Hathaway
Al Hathaway

also, the card is number 151, the set only goes up to 100 and I can’t find the card on EBay, even with a stamp. Is this a great find or some common card?

Ryan Cracknell
Ryan Cracknell

Al Hathaway Sounds like the Desert Storm is a buyback. There were 3 series that Topps did in 1991 http://www.cardboardconnection.com/1991-topps-desert-storm-trading-cards

Al Hathaway

I bought a box of these today… at first I thought it was mislabeled, because it states four hits and I only pulled three autos… upon further reading I saw that the buyback card is the fourth hit. So I then searched through all the cards for a gold stamp 75 and did not find one. I then looked at the copyright of each card… finally, I found it. A 1991 Desert Storm card of THE MARINES LAND… however, it has no stamp on it. Weird.

J Lloyd
J Lloyd

Okay, so the #68 from Back to the Future II in my box is a buy-back card. Now what?


I know this is from almost a decade ago… but any chance you still have that buy-back card? I have a master collection of back to the future themed cards, and this sounds like something I need. dodson(dot)brian(at)gmail(dot)com

Real shame, IMO, that there’s a foil in every pack. Dilutes the joy of getting one. Couple years ago when Topps had their American Pie series, the “foils” were inserted at a rate of @ 1 per 4 packs…. so in a regular box you’d get about 6 of ’em as opposed to this 75th Annie with 24 per box. Plus, the American Pie base set was 200 cards total which made putting together a set of the Foil parallels a moderate challenge. But I like the diamond sparkle parallel cards in this product… they rook mah-vel-us ;-)

Why does everyone insist on calling the cards “rainbow” cards, when they are actually called refractors?

Ryan Cracknell
Ryan Cracknell

Pete T It’s the name Topps gave them.


I wish Topps included more cards from their ’70s sets like Black Hole, Buck Rogers, Mork & Mindy, Three’s Company, etc. They also could’ve included Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and held back some of their over-produced sets of the late-’80s and early ’90s. Funny to see how many “missed opportunities” Topps had with some sets like Jaws 2, Ghostbusters II, Back to the Future II and Robocop II; missed the hit but backed the bomb!


75th anniversary? Wasn’t their 60th anniversary like two years ago? 2011 was a good year for cards, but man, do they know how to run a good thing into the ground or what!?

“hey, 60th anniversary was a hit… what’s next?”
“75th anniversary! Tomorrow!”


What exactly is a BuyBack card? And what can I do with one?
I have tried to imagine what this means, but each possibilty is quickly dismissed as pointless!

Ryan Cracknell
Ryan Cracknell

Cord A buyback is an “old” card that has been put back into packs. For this set, Topps added a foil stamp. They do this with lots of sets. Other companies take old cards and have them autographed (like the Stallone cards here).


Hello, does anyone know what is the meaning of 400 total for the printing plates? This cannot be per card right, just 400 available maybe meaning not every card will have one….Wasn’t sure what this meant.

Thanks, Eric

Ryan Cracknell
Ryan Cracknell

Eric Each of the 100 base cards has four different Printing Plates – one for each color of the printing process.

Bought one pack and got van williams redemption and star trek diamond #/75



Kurry F

Corey Feldman (the best card imho) is a redemption


There is a redemption card on eBay for a Russell Johnson autograph.


Be careful before saying entertainment products rarely have redemptions lol. Last year’s American Pie had redemption for Jimi Hendrix guitar pick…memorabilia and on the sell sheet. Guy got one of their sticker dump autos of DWIGHT GOODEN as his equal value replacement


If I may add, that’s what makes this hobby so fun and exciting. To be able to share your passion in trading card collecting and to be able to look back in time (Just like in H.G. Wells “The Time Machine”) and remember what, how, when, and where you were on that day when you pulled a specific card!


Being a exclusive football card collector first and foremost, I must admit that I am absolutely intrigued by your description of this set. Having been born in 1966, I had the privilege of growing up watching all the shows mentioned, and purchasing some of the products that were available like “Garbage Pail Kids”. I’m guilty in that I purchased the aforementioned product just for the gum. I did casually look at the cards and then toss them out or stick the cards in my bike spokes! With the three auto hits, I would love to get any and or all of the mentioned past stars. My all time favorite chase autograph would have to be Richard Kiel whom portrayed “Jaws” in two James Bond movies! Most importantly is the addition of a “Buy Back”! I have heard of these specialty cards, but have never seen nor pulled one. The addition of a “Buy Back” as a gauranteed hit is worth the cost of a hobby box. Ryan, you can count on me in a purchase of a hobby box as well as leaving a glowing five star review of the debut “2013 Topps 75th Anniversary Trading Cards”! God willing, I would love to give my reveiew of “Topps 100th Anniversary Trading Cards”! We can both look back and reminisce on the 75th trading cards.

This looks like it will be fun. Historical sets are always a good time.


LOL and how many redemptions in this product?? Let me guess… 50% of the cards will be redemptions and then I’ll get one of your new sticker-dump replacements! COOOOOLLLL!!!!!!

Ryan Cracknell
Ryan Cracknell

Andre Entertainment products rarely have redemptions. The last set to have any that I can recall is 2011 American Pie. Hopefully none here either.


Interesting idea for a set. Looking forward to busting this if price point is low.
