Trivia

  • 1st set to contain Oakland Athletics cards.
  • Wax packs were $0.05 for 5 cards.
  • Features the rookie cards for Hall of Famers Nolan Ryan and Johnny Bench.

    598 card set, down from 609 cards in 1967.
  • The Sporting News All Stars subset returned after a hiatus.
  • Backs of All-Star cards were puzzle pieces that formed pictures of Orlando Cepeda and Carl Yastrzemski.
  • Dick Hughes (#253), Rick Monday (#282) and Rich Nye (#339) were each named to the 1967 Topps All-Star Rookie Team but their cards are missing the trophy designation.
  • The Nolan Ryan/Jerry Koosman RC #177 has an uncorrected error on it's reverse, as the second 's' was left out of the word 'sensational' within Nolan's bio.

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.
