I'll never forget the first time I laid my hands on a small stack of 1971 Topps baseball cards...

When I was a kid, I would often visit my grandparents on their farm, and one weekend, I saw a pile of maybe 300 or so vintage cards that spanned across the 1970, 1971, and 1972 Topps sets sitting on a bookcase.

The cards had belonged to one of my uncles and my grandma had dug them out to show me since she knew how much I loved baseball cards.

Though there wasn't much to see in the small number of 1970 and 1972 Topps cards, there were a bunch of 1971 Topps, including two huge ones:

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