Agree with Anthony that you need a pack with a set, but you certainly do not need a bulky box

Default 1970

By the way, while 1970 is not one of my favorites in terms of the regular set, for each year I also collect any insert or test sets. For 1970 there were several such sets, the 1970 Candy Lids ( tops to tubs of candy), the 1970 Posters ( pack inserts), the 1970 Scratch offs ( repeated in 1971),1970 Booklets ( pack insert), and the 1970 Supers. Plus, one of the toughest of all unissued test sets,, the enigmatic 1970 Cloth Stickers

Cool stuff Al!

I always enjoy looking at your collection and if you want to adopt me I would appreciate it "dad".

Personally I love this set-it was the first one I collected as a kid and I had a whole slew of 'em back then. When I re-entered in the early 80's it was the first set I started again. A lot of folks dislike the gray fronts but I've always liked it. I also think the back is one of the best Topps ever produced.

I'm right there with you Dave. I was 8 years old in 1970 and those were the first cards I ever saw and I loved them. So when I got back into collecting as an adult it was the first set I completed, and still have it. Under appreciated set in my opinion.

Thanks for all of the replies. I am waiting on three lots to arrive that I won on eBay. Have been surprised at how little I have paid for them. Maybe this set will stay under the radar (and prices stay low) until I complete it, LOL.

Dave H and myself were working on trying to figure out if there were any SP's in any of these series. Especially the higher series, I believe you or someone else emailed me those sheets but I'd love to get another copy so we can verify our suspiciions in either direction

The first packs I busted as a kid were 1970s but I am not a fan of the set, unless the cards look like these:

Adam, if you went out drinking with us you'd find all cards look like that eventually.
