Set Description

The 1966 Topps baseball card set features 598 standard size cards, which measure 2½” by 3½”. The only subset for the 1966 Topps baseball cards is the league leaders (215-226). The high number series (523-598) is more difficult and expensive to collect. This set has been considered undervalued and underrated for a longtime, but it does have some gems to be discovered. It has a design that tends to get overlooked in favor of the bolder designs of other Topps sets in the 1960, but to devoted collectors, the 1966 set holds a special allure for basic but classic looks. While it lacks some of the high powered rookies, it does have a few rookie standouts like Jim Palmer, Fergie Jenkins, and Don Sutton.

  1. Jac Holtzman says:

    There are many error/variation cards including the Spahn/Henry checklist, Ranew, Flood, Uecker, and Johnson trade statement/no statement, and the Don Landrum button variations. At one time the Uecker variation sold for more than the Mantle.

    There are more variations in this set than 1964, 1965 and 1967 and 1968 Topps combined. Harrumph.
