The 1969 Topps set is one of the more interesting sets of the decade. The combination of star cards, condition obstacles and variations make this set very appealing. Key rookie cards like that of legendary slugger Reggie Jackson and Hall of Fame pitcher Rollie Fingers help pace the set in addition to other keys like Mickey Mantle’s last card from his playing days and the tough White Letter variations (which also includes Mantle). The Mantle White Letter variation is considered one of his most desirable cards. While the cards can be found sharp, centering a print problems plague this issue. Most cards were produced with a "tilt" resulting in many off-center examples. The sheer size of this set, coupled with the condition problems, creates a real challenge for set builders.
