1969 Topps

The 1969 Topps Baseball set consists of 664 cards, each measuring 2-1/2" by 3-1/2”. The set features a color photo with the team name printed in block letters underneath. A circle contains the player’s name and position. Noted for its large number of stars, the “Rookies” of Reggie Jackson, Rollie Fingers and Bobby Bonds, and Mickey Mantle's last card, the set also hosts a substantial number of Variations, which included in the mix would bring the total number of cards in the set nearly 700. Most significant among the varieties are white and yellow letter cards from the run of #’s 440-511, with the “white letter” variations being more scarce. The most overt error is card #653, which features a Los Angeles Angels batboy in lieu of Aurelio Rodriguez. Subsets include “League Leaders,” “World Series,” “All Stars,” but notably absent is the inclusion of any team sets, which had regularly appeared since the 1956 Topps series. Also inserted into regular issue packs were 33 additional 1969 Topps Baseball “Deckle Edge” cards, as well as 48 smaller, 1-1/2” by 1-1/2” Topps Decals.
