1978 Covers

These covers pretty much sums up the late 70's era baseball for me.

I always thought that Carew's hand looked like a bloody glove

1979 Covers

Introducing the 1979 Covers! Looks like they are along the same as the 1980 version.

JR Richard
Damn that guy was great to watch

Burt Hooton

Ron Guidry

I really don't have much to add to these covers. Very plain, same color schemes, same color fonts.
The only thing that changes on these is the player image and the name.
Weak effort by Street and Smith!

1980 Covers

Here is the series from the 1980 Street and Smith Baseball issues

Brian Downing
It appears that they hit the right color for header

Joe Niekro
Greez S&S couldn't you have gone with Orange on the header?

Mike Flanagan
Cover looks like they mixed together the Orange and Black to get the weird Brown.

1981 Covers

Welcome to my new Blog!
Being a child growing up in the 70's and 80's the Street and Smith Baseball Yearbooks were always a must have for any baseball fan.

My first post is straight from my childhood. To this day I can remember seeing that photo of George Brett!


1981 Covers-First thing I noticed is that S & S did away with the side panel color. I like this much better than what they did in 1980. It allows the reader to see a larger image of the players. And they made the photo of the players overlap the Baseball title.
Nice touch!

What a great cover! George Brett going for .400 that year, it was an exciting season.
Cover observations: Blue Title with yellow background (Blue to match the Royals?)
This was the only cover that I thought existed, little did I know that their were other covers for the same issue......

Ricky Henderson-Oakland A's
I really like how the header on the cover matches the A's yellow on there uniforms and the green fonts match as well.

Mike Schmidt-Philadelphia Phillies
Cover observations: Black and Red and White. Looks nice together.
