1986 Topps Baseball Cards

1986 Topps Baseball Cards

1986 Topps Baseball is largely overlooked today. Still readily available, the checklist includes rookie cards of such former fan favorites as Cecil Fielder and Len Dykstra. Pete Rose has a tribute subset honoring his all-time hits record.

1979 Topps Baseball Cards

1979 Topps Baseball Cards

1978 Topps Baseball Cards

1978 Topps Baseball Cards

1978 Topps Baseball is anchored by a pair of Hall of Fame rookies: Eddie Murray and Paul Molitor (who shares a card with Alan Trammell). While it’s one of the more subtle sets of the decade, it’s still widely respected among collectors.

1977 Topps Baseball Cards

1977 Topps Baseball doesn’t have a huge rookie card to anchor its value but it does have several second-tier stars, including Andre Dawson, Dale Murphy and Bruce Sutter. Definitely one of the quieter sets of the decade, in terms of both design and impact.
