How many baseball cards were in the 1988 Topps set?

There were 792 baseball cards in the collection, and each card from the 1988 Topps baseball card set is listed here. Please keep in mind that baseball cards showing a player who did not appear in a regular season game during the most recently completed season do not connect to their big league statistics. These are called "exhibition" or "test" cards.

The average price per card was $10.25. The total value of the set is $950.12.

The first baseball card set, American Tobacco, was issued in 1869. It included portraits of players on both teams with biographical data about them. The cards were printed by D.J. Morrell & Co. in New York City. There were eight different players from New York City alone in the first set! In 1872, another set was issued with more players from cities other than New York. In 1873, an entire new series was issued which is when the term "baseball card" was first used to describe the sets.

Baseball cards became popular again after the Civil War and have been issued annually by various companies ever since. In 1888, the first set designed and printed specifically for collectors was issued by Henry Chadwick. It is this set that is considered the beginning of the modern hobby of baseball card collecting.

As the sport's popularity increased so too did the demand for baseball cards.

Are there any baseball cards from the 1987 Topps set?

Even while Topps relied mainly on its classic design for the 1987 baseball set, it did include numerous subsets and special cards throughout its 792-card roll that gave collectors a distinct look as well as some intriguing facts about the game. Here are the most notable of those cards.

Athletics: The Athletics were one of four teams who used black as their primary color (along with the Browns, Dodgers and Indians). Other than that, they were exactly like other members of the Big League club - except that their logo was colored red instead of blue. They were nicknamed "The Black A's" by fans because of their team colors.

Bears: This card featured Ed Kerns, who was a backup catcher for the Bears in 1987. He was also known as "Kernsville," since he played most of his career for the Chicago Cubs organization. The photo on the back of his card was taken at Wrigley Field.

Blues: Seven players on this card came from the St. Louis Cardinals organization, including two future Hall of Famers in Rogers Hornsby and Joe DiMaggio. Both men were given an autograph number ("7") to distinguish them from each other. The other five players included three more future Cardinals in Mark Whiten, Tony Peña and Armando Galarraga.
