Description

1974 Topps is a 660-card set released in January, 1974. The set represented the first time Topps had "all 660 cards in one series". Also for the first time, factory sets were issued through the JC Penny catalog. Sales were probably disappointing for it wouldn't be until 1982 before factory sets were issued again. 1974 marks the first time Topps priced their cards at more than a penny a card.

After the 1973 season, the San Diego Padres were rumored to be relocating to Washington D.C. Fifteen cards (13 players, the team card, and a Rookie Prospects card) of the Padres were printed either as "San Diego Padres" or "Washington "Nat'l Lea."" The latter are the scarcer variety and are denoted in the checklist below.

Each team's manager and his coaches again have a combined card with small pictures of each coach below the larger photo of the team's manager.

The first six cards in the set (1-6) feature a tribute to Hank Aaron's illustrious career in anticipation of his becoming the All-Time Home Run King. The first card announces that Hank was "New All-Time Home Run King". Cards (2-6) give a career highlight summaries while showcasing his prior Topps cards on the front. Other topical subsets included in the set are League Leaders (201-208), All-Stars (331-339), Playoffs (470-471), World Series (472-479), and Rookie Prospects (596-608). The card backs for the All-Stars (331-339) have no statistics, but form a picture puzzle of Bobby Bonds, the 1973 All-Star Game MVP. The Rookie Prospects were organized by position and showcased four players each.

Of the 660 cards in the set, 95 are rookie cards. The key Rookie Cards in this set are Ken Griffey, Sr., Bucky Dent, Frank Tanana, Dave Parker, and eventually Hall of Famer Dave Winfield (which curiously, does not have a Washington variation).

1974 Topps also features the final playing days base cards of HOF's Luis Aparicio (61), Orlando Cepeda (83), & Al Kaline (215).
