The Top 10 logo-centric set designs of all time – No. 9. 1982 Topps Football

This is the NFL helmet design set. Remember going to the store as a kid and putting a quarter in one of the red and glass machines and out popped an plastic replica NFL helmet. Well that is what this set design reminds me of.  I would wish the helmet was made even larger  on the card but it is still cool looking. 2011 Score Football used a similar design a long the lines of the helmet but smaller with a color coded the background. 2011 Score Football just missed this list.


  1. One of the first sets I ever collected, still think its one of the sharpest. That was the first year Topps had the rights to NFL logos, so there was no longer airbrushed helmets in that set.

  2. Love the 82 Topps football card design, because of the mini helmet. I'm also a huge fan of the 89 Score set for the same reason.
