Default From Sports Collectors Daily - 1971 Topps Football

http://www.sportscollectorsdaily.com...-football-set/

I am not a fan of this set, just didn't care for the design but I do like the game card inserts which were a take off on what Topps did in 1968 for their third series in baseball.

While I wait for my friend Brian to comment, I'll share (again) about my 1971 Topps set of "Pin-Ups". A couple of years ago at out local monthly show, a dealer was selling a near set of PSA graded pin-ups (31 of 32 missing only Dick Butkus). I guess he was tired of lugging them around because he sold them to me for $100. I picked up a graded Butkus, and now own the #2 position in the PSA Registry (only two full sets registered).
Thumbs up for the 1971 Topps set!

Default These cards?

You won't find many of those pesky near mint quality cards in my collection, but you will see quantity

I doubt anyone else is actively collecting 20+ sets of these...my favorite set even though I have completed several prewar sets and have a decent prewar HOF collection...none rival my favorite set shown here.
This photo shoot was taken when I was going to stop at 14 sets, but I have blown by that now

I don't think I'd call myself an expert, but I chewed the gum and bought the packs in 1971. I was 9.

I think I knew every card number by heart then...and I think I still do...

I had the posters on my wall...(nice slabs Larry, I have a couple creased poster sets here and a ton of the game cards. So if you ever come by, we'll use mine for the playing field , not yours

The backs of the posters are the playing field, a yellow field marker was a dreaded pull from the packs instead of a player. The game cards have extremely poor quality control for centering. The regular cards are not as bad...but it's Topps in the Seventies, so you know you'll get the occasional bonus of two players on the same card.

Always seeking more, but be warned...I'm cheap

My story is a replica of Brian's except I'm only working on set #4 in ex condition (set 1 is nm mt) and I'm obsessed with unopened packs for 1971. At last count I think I have 16 wax, 4 cellos and 2 racks.

I'm generally a NY Jets team set builder and I do have a couple of the Jets cards from this set, including the Namath pin up. Actually been thinking of putting this set together since it is the year of my birth.

I personally love this set. The Red and Blue borders are clean and strong and I like a nice simple design.

+1000 on your sets, Brian!
