1968 Topps Baseball Complete Set 2.5 - GD+
The 1968 set is the last one that Topps produced that contained 598 cards, due to the fact that four new several expansion teams would join the league the next year. The 1968 Topps card features a photo of the players that is surrounded by an unusual speckled border, which tends to hide flaws.
