I remember my mom bringing home packs of these from the grocery store. I loved ripping them open and trading them with other kids on the block. At the time I couldn't imagine how much fun I'd have throughout my life collecting cards.

The 1968 Game is another under-the-radar set that can easily built and features so many star players and HOFers. Though it is basic, the game in itself is fun to play.

this was the first year i ever bought a pack of cards, 9 years old. used my coke bottle money from construction sites. my mom began collecting cards for me from the 61-63 post cereal and salada coins. got some topps 61-63 from an older friend and learned to read by sorting the cards into teams based on their hat logos. too many C's got confusing. always hated the pictures with no hats. sold a suitcase of mint 68 and 69 doubles to neighbor for 10 bucks. kept my rubber band damaged full sets. started buying complete sets from bruce yeko at wholesale cards in 1970. also started buying older cards and sets from him. still have 1968 pricebook showing complete set of 1952 topps for $199.00. i begged my dad to buy but got complete set of 1964 instead. glad i found this website. will take several years to list my cards.

This was the first pack I ever opened. Paid .05c and ate the gum. I still have the old creased Mickey Mantle that I collected back then, and some of the others. Some of the commons ended up being a noisemaker on the spokes of my bicycle. Good times!

1968 Topps baseball was the first pack that I ever opened. I think it was a 2nd or 3rd series pack. "Burlap" border and all, it's still a sentimental favorite of mine.

First pack I ever bought had Don Drysdale and Orlando Cepeda in it. But it was lost on a seven-year-old; I didn't buy another pack until 1970. By then I had caught baseball fever, and have collected ever since.

This is a really cool set that took some time for me to truly appreciate.

watch for bright yellow colored backs

there were some made in milton bradley games

the annual price guides do not show a premium for these, but the secondary market does show premium for some

This was the first pack of cards I ever opened. I was 6 or 7 when this came out. I remember buying them at a small grocery store. My mom also put packages of baseball cards in my easter basket.

Lots of great players in this set and a couple of great rookie cards, though in my opinion, one of the worst looking sets Topps ever made, as well as one of the worst quality control jobs.
Of all the sets in my collection, this one seemes to have the most misprints, even more so than the 1987 Donruss base set, and that's really saying something.
