Welcome to the 1971 Topps blog.

I have all but 12 cards to go in completing this wonderful set, and I am hoping that this blog will get me that final dozen.

Not much to say about how I'm going to address this set, except that I will feature a card every other day or so in numerical order from 1-752.

Oh, and the intro into each fact for each card has been taken from the lyrics of the "Theme From 'Shaft,'" which was a No. 1 song in 1971.

Hope you enjoy!


  1. Woohoo I'm the first follower. What do I win? Oh yeah sorry I'm not on a Yahoo message board so being first means nothing.

    Seriously I am really looking forward to your work here. While I don't have a lot of 1971s, it was always one of my favorite vintage sets as a kid. Can't wait to learn more about it.

  2. It is about time somebody did this! Looking forward to it.

  3. Both of your blogs are already loaded in my Blogroll...I look forward to seeing what you have to write.

  4. Black bordered Cards worst idea of all time or the best idea of all time? Lets do this!

  5. Ok, Night Owl! As we speak, I'm adding you to my blogs' sidebars, and tossing the non-blog 1971 placeholder.
