Retro Break: The Late 1970s

The stacks of cards we're seeing here are getting taller as we head into the latter half of the '70s. Let's get started.

1975 Topps
Unclaimed Cards: 5
Claimed Cards: 5
#70 Mike Schmidt - Phillies (BS)
This card... this collar. One I wish I had in my collection.

#237 Carl Morton, #9 Frank Trepindo - Braves (Chris Mays)

#585 Chris Chambliss - Yankees(BS)

#11 Bill Melton - White Sox (JediJeff)


1976 Topps
Unclaimed Cards: 7
Claimed Cards: 3
#213 Dave Heaverlo - Giants (BS)

This appears to be Dave's rookie card. He appeared in a number of sets through 1981.
#208 Mike Lum - Braves (Chris Mays)

Seeing that sleeve feather just makes you feel happy, right?
#212 Pat Kelly - White Sox (JediJeff)

I seem to remember a Yankee named Pat Kelly popping up on cards in the '90s.

1977 Topps
Unclaimed Cards: 0
Claimed Cards: 0
Alrightythen...

1978 Topps
Unclaimed Cards: 47
Claimed Cards: 16
Yeah, this is the set where things start getting weird. I've got a big stack of Angels, Expos, Brewers, and Cardinals. Whoever put this lot together was just dumping partial team sets, so it's pretty much all or nothing.
Cubs (P-Town Tom)

Oh, you Cubs and your goofy team cards.
Giants (BS)


Yup, everybody else got nothing, but the Giants get a whole big bunch. Good for BS, sad for everyone else.

1979 Topps
Unclaimed Cards: 77
Claimed Cards: 36
Again, big team dumps.
Cubs (P-Town Tom)

Dodgers (Play at the Plate)

Yankees (BS)

Some good ones here, especially considering New York was coming off a World Series year.
Braves (Chris Mays)

It really begins and ends with Rowland Office, doesn't it? I can't really see any other cards when one of his is out.

Sorry no Rangers, few White Sox and Phillies. On the bright side, there's a nice big stack of 1980 Topps coming your way soon.
