1978 Topps Baseball Checklist

By: Tony Frye

Last Updated:

1978 Topps Baseball cards are a simple, elegant design that has rarely been matched since. Several Hall of Fame players are featured on the 726 card checklist including Lou Brock, Willie McCovey, and Nolan Ryan.

The reverse of some cards included a baseball play which allowed two people to “Play Ball”. For example, the owner of a Phil Niekro card would be awarded a single in the game.

Our checklist includes all of the cards in this set and can be searched or sorted as needed.
