Then, a couple weeks ago I realized I didn't have the set completely finished when I saw a card from an insert set on ebay---brain cramp #2.
The set is now complete and the post is going up today; my cramps are gone.
First, a little about the set. The 180 cards feature all the big stars from the 70s. The first 90 cards were the base cards of the players. The other 90 were various subsets (Rookie Flashbacks, Decade Dateline, and Award Winners).
The design of the base card is a ripoff of Topps 1975. Interesting that Upper Deck decided to celebrate the 70s by giving Topps a nod of their cap---or else by blatantly ripping them off.
Four Cubs were in the first 90 cards...
As far as the subsets go, a few more Cubs showed up.
Fergie Jenkins and Bruce Sutter were Award Winners, both winning Cy Young Awards. These cards borrow the Topps '74 design.
Three Cubs made the Decade Datelines. These cards have a Topps '72 feel to them.
Billy made it twice (1,117 consecutive games streak and first batting title). Madlock's card was for his first batting title in 1975 and Dave Kingman was included for hitting three homer in my all-time favorite game.
In addition to the base set, there were also several insert sets and two Cubs were included.
Dave Kingman was a bellbottomed basher.
This card is the one I just recently found, Fergie's Arms Race card. Upper Deck really liked this picture since they used it...
...on three different cards in the set.
