1981 Topps Baseball Checklist, Team Set Lists and Details

Share:

1981 Topps Baseball cards aren’t the most memorable. It’s still a landmark release in its own right as the season saw a major change for the hobby landscape. After decades of essentially being the only mainstream option for collectors, both Donruss and Fleer landed MLB licenses and began producing cards.

For Topps, it was largely business as usual, at least with its flagship release. The biggest change from a production standpoint wouldn’t come until later in the year with the release of the first Topps Traded box set.

1981 Topps Baseball Overview

The 1981 Topps Baseball checklist checks in with 726 cards, a touch smaller than 1980‘s 728.

As far as design goes, it’s one of the most memorable of the decade. You could describe as the “cap set” and long-time collectors will likely know exactly what you’re talking about. A cap illustration with the team name is easily the most distinguishing feature of 1981 Topps Baseball. Add to that a separate baseball icon with the Topps logo in it and you’ve got two anchor design elements. The result might not be the most elegant but it is memorable.

Backs resemble the pink of the gum, only printed on cardstock. Full stats are the main feature. Depending on the number of years as a pro, captions and comics are also possible.

When it comes to top-condition cards, centering is the big issue. Card #302, the Dodgers Futures Stars card that’s the RC for both Fernando Valenuzuela and Mike Scioscia is legendary in this particular regard. Neither BGS or PSA have yet to grade a copy of the card higher than a Mint 9.

Subsets

While most of the checklist consists of regular player cards — as should be expected — 1981 Topps Baseball rounds itself out with a handful of subsets.

In fact, eight League Leaders cards kick off the start of the set. These showcase the top American League and National League players in a variety of areas including home runs, wins, batting average, RBI and saves.

Other subsets include Record Breakers (#201-208), the playoffs (#401-404) and team cards (#661-686).

All-Stars are noted with a banner across the tops of their respective cards. However, these are also the players’ regular cards.

Rookie Cards

1981 Topps Baseball Rookie Cards come in a couple of different forms. Some appear solo while others are part of three-player Future Stars cards.

The checklist doesn’t have a massive hobby superstar like Rickey Henderson in 1980 Topps or Cal Ripken Jr. in 1982. However, there are a couple of Hall of Famers in Harold Baines and Tim Raines (who appears alongside Roberto Ramos and Bobby Pate).
