After being privately held for several decades, Topps offered stock to the public for the first time in 1972 with the assistance of investment banking firm White, Weld and Co. The company returned to private ownership when it was acquired in a leveraged buyout led by Forstmann Little and Company in 1984.

Topps Chewing Gum, Inc. manufactures Bazooka gum, Garbage Pail Kids, and many more such products; it is the largest manufacturer of bubble gum and related products in the world.

 1977 Topps Mexican Football Cards
Topps chose to test the waters of Mexico in 1977 by releasing an American football set manufactured and issued in Mexico with the text written in Spanish.
The 1977 Topps Mexican Football set resembles the standard issue in many ways, but it is the subtle (and very distinct) differences that make it unique, mysterious, extremely collectible, and almost a cult-like obsession for those that collect and are trying tediously to complete the set.
After exhaustive research and compilation of private sales, auctions, and communique with other Topps Mexican traders, buyers, and sellers, I have compiled a representative price list of the entire 528 card set, commons, minor stars, 2 card and 4 card wax packs, and complete unopened 2 card wax boxes.

 Looking Back at 1960s Topps Baseball Cards
The 1962 Topps set was the biggest ever, at least at the time, with 598 cards, plus some varieties that took the actual count over 600.
The Topps Peel-Offs included 46 players of the day that could be peeled and stuck to a shirt, wall, or refrigerator.
Topps also released its "Giants" series that year, named that not because of affiliation with the San Francisco Giants, but because the card was a relatively gigantic 3-1/8" by 5-1/4."
