The Cox and Brinkman "yellow team" versions listed in this checklist as Topps variations are part of the Milton Bradley "Win A Card" set, not true Topps variations and thus should be removed from the 1968 Topps checklist. They can be distinguished as Milton Bradleys by their bright yellow backs.

If they are to be considered Topps variations, then all of the 77 baseball cards in the MB set should also be listed as Topps variations, since the backs of the MB cards are bright yellow.

The first pack of cards I "remember" opening was a pack of 1968 Topps bought at a convenience store in Cooperstown, NY after vising the Hall of Fame. Of the cards in the pack, the only one I distinctly remember was of Norm Siebern #537, because he was on the Red Sox. Another thing I remember about that purchase was that above the box of Wax Packs was some Rack Packs of 1967 Topps. I didn't want them because they were "old". Stupid kid. Might've been high numbers.

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.
