1966 Topps Baseball Cards
The 1966 Topps Baseball Card Set contains 598 standard size cards, each measuring 2½" by 3½", and is distinguishable by a diagonal band in the top left corner of the cards containing the team names. The only subset for the 1966 Topps Set is the League Leaders, featured on cards #215 to #226.
The 7th series of the 1966 Topps Baseball Card Set, which spans from card #523 to #598, contains numerous short prints and typically accounts for 50% to 75% of the set's overall value. Many of these 1966 Topps "High Numbers" did not become widely available to collectors until years later, explaining why so many survive in pristine condition.
The 1966 Topps Baseball Card Set features a great rookie class of future Hall-of-Fame pitchers. They are: #126 Jim Palmer, #254 Ferguson Jenkins and #288 Don Sutton.
