1979-80 Topps Basketball Cards

By Patrick Mondout

The '79-80 set was the third straight set of 132 card basketball sets from Topps with no subsets. Wax packs came with two additional cards this year, bringing the total to 12 per pack - and don't forget the gum! For those that did want to forget the gum, there were also 500 count vending boxes available to the hobby.

While there are a number of hall of famers in this set, the only collector interest is in the Alex English rookie card. Even then interest is lukewarm as Alex English is certainly the most underrated and understated high-scorer in the history of the game.
