1974 Topps

Number of Cards

1974 Topps had 660 cards which there are 33 Cubs players plus 3 traded total of 36

Card Dimensions

The standard-sized cards are the following dimensions: 2-1/2" by 3-1/2"

Basic Features

The front of these cards contain a color portrait or action photograph of the player set inside a square frame with round corners. The team's city and player's position are located at the top of the card with the cities name being placed inside a pennant. The players name and the team nickname is located at the bottom of the card with the team nickname being set inside a pennant.

The card backs' standard biographical and statistical data are included, and the color scheme is green with the card stock's natural gray tone. On the back, there is a cartoon tale and a witty quote.

Topps also sold a whole factory set for the first time in 1974. Only the JC Penney department store catalog offered it for sale. The first-ever "Traded" collection, which featured 44 cards of players who switched teams at some time during the year, was an added benefit for buying the set.
