This is a list with brief descriptions of Topps sports card products for 1975.

Baseball[edit]

Topps issued two sets in 1975, the base set was the standard 2.5 by 3.5-inch (89 mm) size and the "Mini" issue which was of an identical design and content, but 20% smaller in size. Topps never released production numbers, but collectors believe that fewer mini cards were produced, making them slightly rarer than the full-sized cards.[1]

Base set 660 2.5 x 3.5 inches (89 mm)
Mini 660 2.125 x 3.125 inches (79.4 mm)

Parallel Sets[edit]

Since 1965, the Canadian candy company O-Pee-Chee produced virtually identical, but smaller, sets identical to the Topps issue of the same year. The Canadian printed cards were printed on grey cardstock and featured French and English text on the reverse.
