Joy of a Completed Team Set - 1968 Topps

Yep, that marked up, creased up beat up ol' checklist completed my 1968 Topps team set. Yes, I include floaty head checklist cards in my team sets. I chased that Felipe Alou card for years to complete the set only to realize Clete Boyer was on a checklist. The rage, it burned. It's done now though and I'm so happy I scanned the backs too. Enjoy the burlapy Braves goodness.

I like Joe Torre but I think he could have scared the kids on Halloween back then without a mask. He actually looks better 40+ years later. Congrats on completing your set.

Those leaders cards always get me. There are a bunch of leaders cards with Dodgers on them from about 30 different years that I need to track down.

I try not to think about it.

Did you get the variation of the Boyer checklist card?

Hackenbush - Joe REALLY looks rough on some of his cards from the early '60s.

Night Owl - Two words: Koufax. Drysdale. That's 75 % of every pitching leader card of the '60s.

Eric - if it falls in my lap one day I'll take it, but I'm not worrying about variations on team sets.

Jim - Thanks, Jim! Do I have all your blogs in the reading list? I've lost track.
