At the height of my youthful card collecting, you could never find even a single one of them that didn't look like a nun's habit. And we weren't into condition (like it is nowadays) at all. All of our other cards had the usual wear on them, but we didn't mind. The 1971's, though? They were a nightmare! Like musical tastes, it's fascinating how perceptions vary.
Having bought them new when they came out, the action photos were a first for Topps and we loved them. After years of collecting cards with only posed pictures, the 1971 and 1972 Topps sets were special. They just miss my top 5 but both are very high on my list.

I never realized, until a few seconds ago, that Topps stopped using action photos after the 4th series (Tommy John at card #520 is the last one). Odd.

Here's my favorite PSA 7 from my set (a testament to how nice they look without nun's habits around the edges).

I’ll follow the rules here as some seemed to disregard “Include at least one set from 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s”. I like cards that pop with color, have a uniqueness about them, and features design that highlights the era in which they we’re produced.

1) 1954 Topps
2) 1951 Bowman
3) 1955 Topps
4) 1963 Topps
5) 1971 Topps

Honorable mention: 1953 Topps, 1954 Wilson Franks, 1959 Topps, 1960 Topps

There are just so many great action shots, 1971 has to be at least top 10. After years of head shots and poses, we got these



It was an absolute game changer for future Topps sets.

I think this may be the first time in the history of the interweb that someone has declared their love for the 1970 Topps set. At least by placing it in a 'Top 5' list.

Hey, we all need some love.

1960 Topps
1965 Topps
1974 Topps
1975 Topps
1959 Topps

Honorable mentions to '56 (artful) and '71.

Believe it or not, I find the 74s the most aesthetically pleasing of the 1970s cards. I like how the border colors are made to coordinate with the uniforms of the teams represented. Very nice. The downside, of course, is the lack of rookies and high dollar cards in the set. That doesn't matter to me, but I understand that it does for most.

I used to consider my taste for the '75s a guilty pleasure, until I discovered (to my shock) that lots of people love the set. Maybe its the rookie selection?

I should add that 1974 was the year I started collecting, so '74 and '75 have that advantage, as well.

It's interesting to see the variety on here. I think '65 may have been mentioned the most?

Default I like the 74 as well

Of all the years that I grew up buying, 74 and 75 were the two years I had the most dupes of. I ended up putting together a master set of 74's with all the variations and a printers proof run of a single player.

75's were the same way but no master set to mess with there.

Enjoy!

I pretty much love all of the Topps and Bowman sets from 51 to 56 though. Such an amazing era for baseball cards.
