1969 Topps Super Baseball Cards
The 1969 Topps Super baseball card set was issued independently of Topps annual baseball card series in 1969. The set consists of 66 cards that each measure approximately 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" or about the size of a postcard. The borderless cards are beautifully simple, only featuring a large player photograph with a facsimile autograph to identify the player, for a classic look and feel. The "Super Baseball" title is printed on the back of the card.
The 1969 Super cards typically come with rounded edges, however complete sheets and cards with square corners cut from these sheets are sometimes encountered. Furthermore, cards from the far right of each row are often found with a white line on the right edge of the card.
The 1969 Topps Super baseball card set includes several stars and high dollar cards, including, #24 Mickey Mantle, #28 Reggie Jackson RC, #34 Hank Aaron, #41 Pete Rose, #58 Roberto Clemente and #65 Willie Mays.
