Most Valuable 1978 Topps Baseball Cards

After perusing the 1978 Topps baseball card set, one thing that sticks out in my mind is how much Hall of Fame controversy there is within its checklist.

It all comes down to the dual-image design and overall color scheme…

Each of the design elements works seamlessly together to make the card visually pop as loudly as a Mantle longball headed for the seats beyond the outfield wall.
