1966 Topps Baseball Cards

Welcome To 1966 Topps Baseball Cards

This set has been considered undervalued and underrated for a longtime, but it does have some gems to be discovered.1 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.1 While it lacks some of the high powered rookies like Ryan and Seaver, it doesn't have some rookie standouts like Jim Palmer, Fergie Jenkins, and Don Sutton.

The set had a total of 598 cards and was sold in both wax packs and cellos.1 The only subset of this set is the League Leaders one.1 The NL batting leaders card with Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, and Willie Mays is considered by some to be the best leaders card ever issued.1 There are team cards for most teams in the league in this set; however there is not one for the Astros because they were engaged in a legal case over the rights to their name.

The card fronts feature a clean design with a diagonal strip in the upper left corner for the team name.1 At the bottom of the card is a rectangular name panel which also displays the player's field position.11 The team name strips are all color coded based on their affiliation with either the AL or NL.1 On the backs of the cards is a bio section, a stats table and a cartoon panel.

There was a partner line of Canadian-issued O-Pee-Chee cards which differ from the regular Topps set only in that they are printed with 'printed in Canada' rather than 'printed in U.S.A..1 There was also a Venezuelan set released which is now very tough to find.1 That set included 370 cards from series 1 of the regular Topps set.1 Venezuelan collectors were told to paste the cards into an album, so many of them that survive have torn off paper on the card backs.1 They were also printed on cheaper card stock and they do not say where they were printed.1 These cards had a tendency to get worn and yellow much faster and they were very poorly centered ad printed in very small amounts.

The high number cards from the '66 Topps set are the rarest.1 43 of them are considered short prints.1 The Willie McCovey #550, Billy Williams #580, and the Gaylord Perry #598 are the most popular of these short printed ones.1 To compile a true master set of the 196 Topps cards, one must include several variations.1 Four cards #63, 91, 103, and 104 all lack sales information the card backs.1 The examples off these cards without this info carry a high value on today's market.

There are 3 versions of the Don Landrum single card.1 One shows a button showing on his pants, one shows him without this button, and one shows a partial button.1 The partial button one is the scarcest.1

111111111111111111111111 There are also several uncorrected error cards.1 The Palmer rookie card incorrectly lists him as a southpaw.1 Other notable rookie cards from the set include Don Kessinger, Mickey Stanley, Roy White, Bobby Murcer, and Horace Clarke.1 Koufax and Robin Roberts make their final card appearance sin this set.1 The set also includes cards for future legends lie Willie Mays, Pete Rose, Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Roger Maris, and Hank Aaron.1 One beloved aspect of this set is the nice mix of legendary superstars in their final years combined with hotshot rookies on their way up to greatness.
