1980-81 Topps Basketball Card Set Checklist, Information

The 1980-81 Topps Basketball set is a landmark set in the hobby. Topps once again experimented with a new design and expanded the set to 264 cards but with 3 perforated mini cards on each card. The three mini cards each featured a different player. Topps ened up putting Magic Johnson and Larry Bird on the same card along with Julius Irving. This card is considered both Larry Bird and Magic Johnson’s rookie card.  A PSA 9 of this card sold for $4,200 at auction in 2016. Bird and Johnson are also feature separately on other cards in the set but these cards are not considered rookie cards and are valued less. I am not sure what Topps was thinking with this set but I can imagine a kid’s first instinct would be to separate the cards along the perforations. Separating the cards like this greatly decreases the value.
