As I shared recently, I was able to pick up a decent chunk of the 1968 Topps Game insert set out of the reject pile at my LCS. Most of the cards I picked up were the lesser players, basically most of the commons from the set. I had pretty much decided to build the set but my trip the following week to the LCS solidified the pursuit. I was able to pick up 9 more cards towards the 33 card set and this time the names were a little more famous and the players a lot more accomplished. Here they are:
Tommy Davis and Joe Torre are the only 2 players in this purchase that aren't HOFers and I would suspect Mr. Torre will make it as a manager quite soon.
Here are a couple of pretty accomplished infielders. I was surprised to see that Killebrew played almost as much 3B as he did 1B in his career. For some reason he just seems like a 1B to me.
I am pretty happy with the progress on this set with 27 of the 33 cards. The best part about this 9 card purchase from the reject pile? The cards only cost me $3.25! I have a want list for this set on my Set Want List Tab if you happen to have any for trade - I am working on a trade for a Mays right now.
