Default Any 1970 Topps fans out there?

I am beginning my journey to complete the 1970 Topps set. It seems as if this is one of the least popular Topps sets. I have read various reasons for this, but I would like to hear from some of you that like the set and why.

Thanks

I like the set. You will spend a bit for very nice examples, and even the high numbers will not break your bank. Aside from Ryan and Bench, with the other major HoF's, they are all affordable. Have fun with the journey and don't try to complete the set in a couple of months. I'm working on a very nice 73 set right now.

Ed, I have mixed feelings on the set. While I do love the all star cards in the set, the set itself is on the bland side for me.

I do not care for the basic colors of the set nor the design. I think it is dull.

It just seems a let down from the previous year which had some very colorful and bright cards as well as some nice rookies and Mantle's last card.

I like the set a lot, for some reason the gray borders are unique. Good cross-section of old stars with new ones. Here's my Munson:

I like this set. The photos are an improvement over 68 & 69.

My last card was Bob Robertson. The Seattle Pilots team card was more expensive than I expected.

Thanks for the replies. I also like the photos and especially the Munson card (nice one Mintacular!). I also think the Reggie Jackson card stands out.

I'm also working on the set in ex condition have about 100 cards with stars. Never collected a older set before so I decided to start with the year I was born. I like the contrast of the grey on colors. Good luck with the set maybe we can trade in the future.

The first packs I ever opened, so a sentimental favorite.
When I got back in the hobby this and '71 were the first sets I completed, and I too was a bit surprised at the cost of the Pilots team, but no card really cost much.

I'm slowly working on a second set in all uncut sheets.




can't collect a set without a pack and box either!

COOL pictures...


I personally love the set, it's also my birth year. My last card was the Bench as I was holding out for a really nice one. The Pilots card cost me as well. I think the photography is excellent and the gray doesn't bore me at all. I remember as a kid getting the Jake Gibbs card, my first ever 70 card, and thinking how COOL it was. As I was collecting the set it was pretty crazy to think some kid was opening these out of packs as I was a newborn...
