Basketball cards were were so unpopular compared to baseball cards that Topps produced one set in 1957-58 and then gave up on the idea for a decade. In 1968 Topps produced a test set of 22 cards and must of like the results. The produced the first of their modern, yearly sets for the 1969-70 season. While basketball cards still trailed baseball and football cards in popularity and sales, at least their were sets - which grew in size both in numbers of cards per set and the actual sizes of the cards - produced every season. At least until 1982. But that is a story for a different decade.
