1971 Topps Football Cards

By Patrick Mondout

Topps and Kellogg's both produced sets of NFL football cards for 1971. Canada's O-Pee-Chee also produced a set of Canadian Football League (CFL) cards featuring a scarce rookie card of Joe Theismann.

The Topps cards were the their last set to feature nothing but players and checklists - no record breakers, league leaders or other subsets. It was the last football set from Topps without subsets and was released in two series.

Specially marked wax packs featured game card inserts similar to the 1968 Topps Baseball game inserts (see Gale Sayers, below). The other packs came with one of 32 pinups (see below) - similar to the posters from 1970.

AFC players were featured on red-bordered cards while NFC stars were on blue-bordered cards. All-Pros were on red and blue bordered cards (see Dick Butkis, below).

Rookie cards include Mean Joe Greene, Terry Bradshaw, Ken Houston, Willie Lanier and middle linebacker Marty Shottenheimer.
