1979 Topps Comics

In 1979, Topps issued a set of 33 Comics which featured the current baseball stars. The set has never been very popular with collectors.

Here is a display box.

The comics were inside a wrapper with gum and sold for 5 cents. Very similar to a piece of "Bazooka" gum, which is also made by Topps. Here are a few packs.

The comics are blank backed and feature a player as well as an "Inside Baseball: tip in the lower right hand corner. Here is an uncut wrapper and comic of #20, Dave Kingman.
