1981 - Miscellaneous Cards


This is where I put the cards that don't fit into the team sets...the highlights, record breakers, all-stars, rookie prospects, etc.

In 1981, Topps subsets included record breakers, league leaders, and post season highlights. I am putting the future stars subset under this heading as many of the players featured on them had their own cards in other sets. I am also putting the team cards here as I am trying to just put individual players into team sets.

I am only including Topps checklists as my goal is to complete every Topps set and then go from there, so the checklists will go under this category.

As for Fleer...there were a handful of cards sprinkled throughout the set that weren't quite the Super Star Specials the company would be known for in later years, but noted star players and their special achievements. I have included them as I think they tell the story of baseball around 1980.

In the Donruss set for 1981, mostly they just produced multiple cards for a handful of players, which I have not included in the ultimate checklist. Donruss did have special cards for the various award winners from 1980 and one card featuring George Brett and Rod Carew that I am including in this checklist.
