10 Most Valuable 1971 Topps Football Cards

Most Valuable 1971 Topps Football Cards

To commemorate the AFL and NFL merger of 1970, the 1971 Topps football card set delivered a bright and vivid design that helped collectors easily distinguish between players from each conference.

Red borders surrounded AFC players while NFC players found themselves in a sea of blue.

Oh, and All-Stars had borders that were divided by both red and blue.

While the design was brilliant, Topps had no idea they were creating the most challenging set of the 1970s...

Those red and blue borders are easy on the eye, yes, but they also easily show the slightest dings and wear.

As a result, finding cards in this set in mint condition is extremely tough.

Condition issues aside, though, it's a fantastic set loaded with Hall of Famers and key rookies.

And in this guide, I'll run through the ten most valuable.

Unopened Box of 1992 Topps Stadium Club Baseball CardsWith the hobby demanding higher quality, the 1992 Topps Stadium Club baseball cards answered the call with a stunning design.

Offering brilliant photography, creative imagery, and premium cardstock, Topps ditched borders and used up the entire front of the card to deliver an exciting product.

And they did so using Kodak imaging technology, as it says right on the box…

That was a big deal back then.

Topps had issued a Stadium Club set the year before but many feel their follow-up set was much better.

It was much larger, too, with a massive 900-card checklist versus “only” 600 cards in the 1991 Stadium Club set.

And in this guide, we’ll take a look at the 15 most valuable.

Most Valuable 1980 Topps Baseball Cards

There's no questioning the significance of 1980 Topps baseball cards in hobby history.

This set marked the end of an era in which Topps was the only mainstream company with the MLB's blessing to print baseball cards.

The legal system would clear the way for Donruss and Fleer to enter the market in 1981, sparking a ramp-up in competition that led to an overheated decade of baseball card production.

For one more year, at least, Topps was the only game in town in 1980.

And they delivered a great set with many stars and Hall of Famers...and one of the biggest rookie cards of the 1980s.

In this guide, I will cover the 15 most valuable in the set.

Let's jump right in...

The dark blue borders with the NBA logo repeatedly scattered across them are instantly recognizable…

This was the sixth year in a row that Fleer had produced a basketball card set dating back to its iconic 1986 set release.

As you’ll notice on this list, Fleer wasted no opportunity in capitalizing off of Michael Jordan’s popularity, especially after he was coming off his first NBA Championship the season before.

Overall, this is one of my favorite Fleer basketball sets of the 1990s.
