I was able to pick up this subset for a very low price. It’s a 6-card set and it highlights some amazing accomplishments that occurred during the 1979 baseball season.
1980 Topps – ‘1979 Highlights’ – Card #1
Headline – ‘Willie McCovey’s 512th homer sets new mark for NL lefties’
Text on the back – Pittsburgh, June 9, 1979 0 Giants’ Willie McCovey tonight belted a 3-run Pinch-Homer to highlight Giants’ 6-2 win over Pirates. The wallop was the 512th of McCovey’s career, setting a new NL mark for lefties. The record of 511 homers was held by Mel Ott.
