1978 Topps Baseball Checklist

By: Tony Frye

Last Updated:

1978 Topps Baseball cards use 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.

This checklist is organized by teams. You can scroll through the entire list or jump to a preferred team by selecting them from the list below. Clicking a link within this checklist will direct you to an affiliate retailer or to relevant eBay listings.
