Description

1982 Topps K-Mart is a 44-card boxed set produced to celebrate the mass-market retail chain's 20th Anniversary Celebration. The set features reprints of Topps cards of the National and American League MVP's from 1962 through 1981. The backs highlight individual MVP winning performances. The dual National League MVP winners of 1979 and special cards commemorating the accomplishments of Drysdale (scoreless consecutive innings pitched streak), Aaron (home run record), and Rose (National League most hits lifetime record) round out the set.

Fred Lynn's card is an original construction from the multi-player "Rookie Outfielders" card of Lynn of 1975. Card #2, similarly, was created after the fact as Maury Wills was not originally included in the 1962 Topps set.

Topps' had previously licensed out cards before to the likes of Burger King, Coca-Cola and Drakes but this was the first time the cards were not attached to a promotional purchase. The cards themselves was the featured item.
