1978 Topps Baseball #74 - Checklist Cards 1-121

  • The scan probably doesn't do justice to how beat up this card is. One of these days I need to get a card lot of commons to replace some of these rough cards.
  • Series 1 All Stars:
    • Starting Pitchers: Phil Niekro, Jon Matlack, Burt Hooton, Randy Jones, Rick Reuschel
    • Relievers: Rich Gossage, Kent Tekulve, Sparky Lyle
    • C: Gary Carter, Thurman Munson
    • 1B: Tony Perez, Eddie Murray, Willie McCovey
    • 2B: Bobby Grich, Jorge Orta (or Phil Garner)
    • SS: Garry Templeton, Larry Bowa
    • 3B: Pete Rose, George Brett
    • OF: Carl Yastrzemski, Andre Dawson, Ken Griffey, Richie Zisk, Ken Singleton
    • Manager: Bobby Cox (in 1978 Darrell Johnson actually had the better managerial career, but Cox and Joe Torre surpassed him later)
  • Hall of Famers in This Series: 9 players, 2 managers.
    • I counted 10 players the first time, but I included Pete Rose. Dang it Pete, why did you have to get yourself banned?
