The 1974 Topps Baseball card set certainly has that early seventy’s vibe.
The set’s white borders are accentuated with colorful flags on each card’s top and bottom.
However, from a design perspective, the set is one of my least favorite designs of all the 1970’s Topps baseball card sets.
The set is chock full of the stars of the era, including Nolan Ryan, Johnny Bench, and Hank Aaron.
The set features Hall of Fame outfielder Dave Winfield’s rookie card; however, the remaining rookie card class is weak.
Subsets throughout the set include a dedication to Hank Aaron (cards 1-6), team card issues, manager card, statistical leaders, all-star cards, and the ever-popular four-panel rookie cards.
PSA has a card by card gallery, which is an excellent resource for viewing the 1974 set in its entirety.
