Sixties Saturday - 1968 Topps

There are just two years left in the decade as we move ahead to 1968.  The 1968 Cubs regressed a little. winning three less games than the year before.  They definitely  did not live up to expectations.

A couple of players have cards with their picture taken at Wrigley Field, so this is the first time since 1965 that Topps showed a Cubs player in the home pinstripes.  We did not get a team card of the Cubs, though, as they were one of several teams that didn't have one.

  1. Some odd duck cards there, Calmus, Elia, Schlesinger and Stephenson. Also the last card of Mikkelson who could've had cards thru the 72 season.
