1978 Topps Baseball Card Checklist

The Topps baseball card set was released in 1978. The set consisted of 726 baseball cards and each card from the 1978 Topps baseball card set is listed below. Note: Baseball cards which featured a player who did not appear in a regular season game during the most recently completed season, do not link to their major league statistics.

"Collectors often decried how money had ruined their hobby, making it hard for them to form meaningful friendships through their cards. Money, however, made the hobby not only profitable but also more serious, more instrumental, and therefore more manly. The same collectors who complained about greed often bragged in the same interview about the value of their cards. Yet money, in turn, made the hobby less akin to child's play and more like work: lonely, competitive, unfulfilling, and alienating." - Author John Bloom in A House of Cards (1997)
