    Signed 1978 Topps Football Complete Set (524) - Almost 600 Signatures! This presentation is a true labor of love decades in the making. In 1978, the NFL was just starting to really explode in popularity. Who could have guessed that rookie running back Tony Dorsett and Walter Payton would ultimately rush for almost 30,000 yards combined. The Cowboys vs. Steelers rivalry thrilled fans around the world. It was the year the NFL expanded to a 16-game season and a 10-game playoff schedule. Offered is a 524-card essentially complete set of 1978 Topps Football cards - each and every card has been autographed by the featured player(s)! The only cards not autographed are the four checklist cards. In addition to single player cards, all 28 team cards (featuring 4 to 6 players) and all dual-player league leader cards have been signed by every player showcased bringing the total number of signatures to just under 600 names! A total of 256 cards have been slabbed by PSA/DNA, some have numeric grades. Already encapsulated are every Hall of Famer, star and difficult autograph. Included are gridiron greats and rarities such as Lyle Alzado, Troy Archer, Terry Bradshaw, Bill Bryant (Signed 2 cards), JV Cain, Bob Chandler (Signed 2 cards), Tony Dorsett (Rookie! Signed 3 cards), John Matuszak, David Mays, Mack Mitchell (Signed 2 cards), Walter Payton (Signed 3 cards), Roger Staubach (Signed 3 cards), John Stallworth (Rookie), OJ Simpson, Daryl Stingley (Signed 2 cards) plus others. Autographs are signed on the front of the card in pen or marker. The over whelming majority are signed in blue or black. A small percentage of the players added a year. Over sixty signatures have numeric grades - most from 7 to 9. Twenty cards have PSA grades. Please see our web site for additional details. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
