1980-81 Topps Basketball Cards
The 1980-81 Topps Basketball card set contains 176 cards and feature a large action photograph which is surrounded by a bright color trim. Below the trim border is the team name printed in a colorful script font and the player's name in standard lettering to the right. The 1980-81 Topps Basketball card set is interesting in that each actually includes three cards, separated by two perforations. However, cards which are separated hold very little value.
The 1980-81 Topps Basketball card set is famous for the rookie cards of basketball royalty, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. The Bird and Magic rookies cards in this set include #6 (Bird and Magic), #48 (Bird), #49 (Bird), #66 (Magic), #94 (Bird), #111 (Magic), #146 (Magic) and #165 (Bird).
