The 1979 Pirates made all OF Pittsburgh feel like one, big Happy "Fam-A-LEE" on their run to a World Series title.  Willie "Pops" Stargell introduced the team to the song "We are Family" and it became a fight song that helped lead the never-say-die team to an epic World Series comeback. Dave "Cobra" Parker joined Pops to add power to the lineup, but the workhorse of the team was relief ace Kent Tekulve, who led the national league in relief appearances and notched a record three saves in the World Series.


Topps mined its archives to create all new collectible products that are inspired by the greatest teams and most memorable moments from America's national pastime. With over 75 years of MLB history—from one-of-a-kind photography to iconic graphic design—stored in the Topps Archives, each collection feels like an authentic time capsule from your favorite team's most memorable year. The Topps Archives Collection, Series 1 pays tribute to superstars and unsung heroes alike, capturing players in their heyday, just as fans remember them.
