    NFL topps 1980 and 1981 cards

    I have just bought a lot of NFL topps 1980 and 1981 cards.

    I like those cards,

    but someone knows why there is not the logo teams on the helmets ?

    Howdy! It's because Topps didn't have a licensing agreement to use NFL team logos until 1982. If you take a look at the set design for '82, you'll see their designers must have wept for joy on acquiring it! Player pictures no longer had airbrushed helmets and a prominent team logo was featured in the lower left corner. Prior to that either artists would need to remove the decals or photographers would have to get pictures with helmets off.

    Congrats on your 80s pickups!!!
