The top 10 greatest Football Cards of the 1970s. No #8 - 1979 Topps O J Simpson.

O.K., he who was famous at this time and became infamous later on. But this card is so great, first it is odd seeing him not in a Bills uniform but also Topps did a great job on this card. In the 1970s, Topps could not show NFL logo’s but the way this half body shot of Simpson wearing a 49er helmet gives you no doubt that this is a 49ers uniform. This card did not need the logo for you to easily figure out who he played for.


  1. I love this series and am looking forward to your next choices. I am compiling my own list, too.

  2. Great card... I'll have to find one for my vintage card binder.

  3. Love this card and i hope the 74 OJ's on the list
