1968 Topps Baseball Checklist

By: Tony Frye

Last Updated:

1968 Topps Baseball cards, with their iconic burlap background, may be most famous for featuring the rookie cards of Nolan Ryan and Johnny Bench.

The 598 base set is also the first to include Oakland Athletics cards as they had recently moved from Kansas City. There was also a 30 card subset of game cards that could be used to play a virtual baseball game.

This checklist is separated by teams. Scroll through the entire list or jump to a preferred team by selecting them from the list below. Clicking a link within the checklist will direct you to an affiliate retailer or to relevant eBay listings.
