Topps Nolan Ryan
Set Description

The 1968 Topps baseball card set features 598 standard size cards, which measure 2½” by 3½”, printed with an unusual speckled frame. The subsets for the 1968 Topps baseball cards are league leaders (1-12), World Series highlights (151-158), and the Sporting New All-Stars Selections (361-380). The high number series (498-598) is slightly more difficult and expensive to collect. The set is best known for containing the rookie card of Nolan Ryan.
