1974 Topps Football Cards

By Patrick Mondout

Topps 1974 football cards featured a goal post separating the main elements (picture, player name, position) and what can be thought of as an end-zone at the bottom with the team's name. For the first time, the cards were distributed all at once instead of in series; all 528 cards were available in wax packs early in the season.

The card backs featured a short biography, statistics, and a cartoon featuring something interesting about the player. The bottom third of the back was devoted to a game you could play with the cards.

The final card of Johnny Unitas from his playing days is in this set. On the other side of the spectrum, rookie cards included Chuck Foreman, Joe Ferguson, Greg Pruit, Ahmad Rashad, Harold Carmichael, Terry Metcalf, Sam Cunningham and Ray Guy.

Topps also created a a set of football cards for Wonder Bread.
