1981 Topps

As a kid, we generally didn't think to look at the back of the cards to see what 'date' or 'year' the cards were. So, when trading with our friends, we came up with descriptive (okay, some not really all THAT descriptive) identifiers. The 1978 Topps were called the "written kind" because of the cursive writing on the front. The 1980 Topps were called the "flag" or "banner" kind. And, the 1981 Topps were called... "The Hat Kind." You can see why in the picture below:
