1979 Topps Football Cards

By Patrick Mondout

Unlike the previous year, the 1979 Topps football cards borrow from previous designs with the ribbon in the upper right of each card giving the cards a resemblance to the 1973 set.

Not only is this Earl Campbell's rookie card (#390 - on the right), but it along with the ones you see below are his only Topps cards as he was never able to come to contractual terms with them again (this happened with Joe Namath earlier in the decade). Other rookies include James Lofton, Ozzie Newsome, Doug Williams, Steve DeBerg, Donnie Shell, Stanley Morgan, and Wilbert Montgomery. As with 1978, the lack of a truly great set of rookie cards makes this a relatively affordable Super70s set.
