The Retro Classic Sports Card Checklists

I wrote about the Golden Era of Topps Baseball Checklists to kick off a new series of posts defining checklists groups or eras. This post is about a group of four checklists called the “Retro Classics”; the 1967 Topps Hockey and 1967 Topps Football checklists.

The 1967 Topps Hockey and Football checklists elicit a similar feeling when I look at them. To me, despite me not having been born yet, they feel like they came out of the late 60s. The color and font choices match the changing American culture at the time. New ideas, rebellious thoughts, and wild trends were going mainstream. Bold color palettes were a common design choice at the time with lots of neons. Contrasting colors and themes that popped were also popular. It’s a bummer we didn’t get a tie-dye-inspired card, but the 1967 Topps hockey and football design choices demonstrate a sense of fun that was common at the time.

Here are a few more details about the Hockey and Football card populations and prices:

When I started researching this series of articles, I debated including the 1971 Topps Hockey and 1972 Topps Basketball ABA checklists in this group, but I didn’t feel they were a perfect fit, so standby to see them in a future grouping. Happy collecting!
