The 1976 set doesn't have much sentimental value to me. I was in high school and my interest in collecting cards was waning. I did get a few packs and they yielded a few Cubs. I do remember thinking that the Cubs cards looked pretty nice. But I wasn't invested in the set like I was in some other sets.
Years later when I was able to put the entire team set together my initial thought was confirmed....the Cubs cards look real nice.
Take a look for yourself and see if you agree with me.
A couple things really stand out for me. A majority of the players are shown in the home whites. The blue and white of the unis, the blue on the cards, even the blue sky in many pictures...everything combines to make really nice looking cards.
