The 1982 Topps Baseball set consists of 792 cards, each measuring 2-1/2" by 3-1/2”. At the time, this set marked Topps’ largest set offering. Posed or in-action color photos dominate the card. A color frame, with the player’s name, team and position at the bottom border, surrounds the likeness. The set is anchored by the rookie card of Cal Ripken, Jr. (#21), and the regular issue cards of Nolan Ryan (#90), Mike Schmidt (#100), George Brett (#200), Robin Yount (#435), Rickey Henderson (#610), Carl Yastrzemski (#650) and Pete Rose (#780). Subsets include American League leaders (547-557) and National League leaders (#337-347). Pascual Perez’s card (#383) was originally issued with an error – the lack of his position – and was later corrected.
