1969 Topps Cards from the MLBPA Boycott of 1968 by Dave Sosidka
Last updated on Jan 16, 2024

As the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) was forming and strengthening, the players realized that Topps, with a monopoly on producing baseball cards, was paying them peanuts for their likenesses. As a move to put some pressure on the Brooklyn-based bubble gum giant, the players decided to not pose for Topps photographers in 1968. The result was that the 1969 set contains many older photos- taken two, three, and sometimes, more years earlier.

Thanks to Jack Webster for his detective work in helping me track some of these down.
