1968 Topps Venezuelan Baseball Cards
The 1968 Topps Venezuelan baseball card set was the final Venezuelan issue that Topps would release in the South American market. This set is similar to earlier Topps Venezuelan sets in that it parallels the first 370 cards of the American issue. The 1968 Topps Venezuelan set is also similar in design to its American counterpart; however, they're a couple distinguishable differences. First, the Venezuelan cards are printed on a gray stock and have an orange background. Secondly, the Venezuelan edition has "Hecho en Venezulela - C. A. Litoven" printed in a slight white type at the bottom of the card on the back. However, not all of the cards have that expression printed on the bottom, a notable exception to this is card #45, Tom Seaver.
