- This was the last year of the classic Topps logo. They switched to the modern logo in 1981.
- Each pack had 12 cards and the ubiquitous slab of gum.
- This set was licenced by the NFLPA but not by the NFL. Players names were allowed to be used, but not the team logos. I never noticed this when I collected the set 30+ years ago, but it really stands out now.
- This was the last football set I collected from packs. After the 1981 baseball season I must have run out of money or something.
