The randomizer created a few round of 16 match ups in which the 2 sets featured are a decade or more apart. It'll be interesting for me to see if any of the "younger" sets get any kind of love against their older counterparts.
Tale of the tape:
- Set Size: 1965 has 598 cards. 1978 has 726 cards
- Key RCs: 1965 Steve Carlton, Tony Perez 1978 Eddie Murray, Molitor/Trammell
- Cost of complete set in NM condition: 1965 $5000 1978 $200
- Number of cards with high book at $100 or more: 1965: 7 1978:0
1965 Topps vs 1978 Topps [edit: thanks to Jim From Downingtown who pointed me to the updated '78T blog]
