The card back is very nice, too (excluding the misspelling of "influence"). The current players "write" about what kind of effect their major league-playing father had on their career. I often wondered how Topps received these "letters" from the players. Did they interview the players or actually ask them to write something down? I have a feeling they weren't interviewed, or at least Topps didn't use the words from the interview verbatim. I'll show why later.
Almost 10 years later, Topps tried the Father & Son subset again in 1985. What was once a five-card set had ballooned to 13 cards.
Although the format was the same -- old card of father and current photo of son -- it didn't come off as warm-and-fuzzy as the 1976 set. First, on the front, instead of "Father & Son," you get the stilted "Father - Son."
