Rookie cards of Bernard King, Walter Davis, Jack Sikma, the underrated Marques Johnson, Norm Nixon and Cornbread Maxwell, among others.

And Don’t Forget …

In addition to the rookies, the set also has its regular assortment of stars. Magic and Bird aren’t yet there, but you will find a heavy dose of 1970s stars, including Bill Walton, Julius Erving, Pete Maravich, Walt Frazier, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Rick Barry, Artis Gilmore, Moses Malone, Earl Monroe, Wes Unseld, George Gervin, Elvin Hayes, Calvin Murphy, Nate Archibald, and many more.

Also in the set is Hall of Fame point guard Dennis Johnson. Johnson epitomizes the undervalued collection of talent in this set as he was often regarded lost in the shuffle alongside big name players. Playing with Bird, Robert Parish, and Kevin McHale, he didn’t get to do as much as he could have on offense with the Celtics. But as he proved in stops with Seattle and Phoenix before arriving in Boston, he was more than a capable scorer. In a three-year stretch with those teams, Johnson averaged over 19 points a game and was one of the league’s top scoring guards. He also was a winner.

Before joining the Celtics, he led the Seattle Supersonics to an NBA title (claiming Most Valuable Player honors) and then won two more championships in Boston. Johnson was a five-time All-Star and landed on nine different NBA All-Defensive First and Second Teams. 

The 1978-79 Topps Basketball  set contains 132 cards of standard size. The notable rookie cards include Dennis Johnson, Marques Johnson, and New York hoops legend Bernard king.
