1968 Topps 1968 Topps Baseball Complete Set
EX - 5
This is a 1968 Topps Baseball Complete Set in Excellent condition. The 1968 Topps set contains all cards (#'s 1-598). This unique set is the last one that Topps made to contain 598 cards, due to the fact that several expansion teams would join the league in 1969. It is one of the most recognizable Topps sets because each card has an unusual speckled background that tends to hide flaws. The back of the card has a yellow and black color scheme with player facts and career stats.
This set has two important sub-series: League Leaders cards (#'s 7-12) and World Series cards (#'s 153-158). This set also features the two key rookie cards of Johnny Bench and Nolan Ryan.
