11.005

The 1979 Topps set was not much of a departure from the 1978 set, as it had only minor design changes and the total set size remained 726 cards. The key card in the set is the Ozzie Smith rookie card. Finding a centered version of this card is still a challenge some 23 years later, which is why the weighting on this set is so heavily dependent on the grade of the "Wizard of Oz" RC.
