What Does A 1968 Topps White Sox Master Set Look Like?

I hear the whispers.

"He talks the talk, but can he offer the goods?"

"What's with this one card at a time crap?"

"He's completed nothing vintage!"

"Where's the proof that he's completed a vintage set?"

"I wonder what Alfred Molina is thinking about right now."

OK, I have no idea what Alfred Molina is thinking. But I can provide scans of the completed 1968 Topps White Sox master set, for all you naysayers. Well, I've never actually heard these things. But hey, it provides a nice opening for this.


Bask in the glow of the couch cushion pattern! See the same photo of Sandy Alomar pop up in the 1969 Topps set! Stare in amazement of a man named Priddy! See the posed pitching of Wilbur Wood! Wow yourself with the sleeve number of Hoyt Wilhelm! Witness Tommy John being Tommy John! Soak in the Spring Training background of Bob Locker! Gaze upon Don McMahon as he tries out for the Commissioner of Beer commercials! Wonder why Luis Aparicio looks pained!

These are the joys of completing a vintage team set! I suggest you complete yours today!

I always love it when I complete a Dodgers 60s set. (Actually, I've only completed one, but I'm very close on several others).

I always called it the "grandma's kitchen wallpaper" pattern.

CONGRATS,Steve! I am a handful of cards away from completing this set myself. Best wishes on knocking out your next set!

Sweeeeeeeet! I only need Felipe Alou and a checklist to finish my '68 team set. I need to get off my butt and find those cards.

I've had this one finished for awhile. I need to get off my butt and complete the rest of the sixties team sets. I actually might finish the 1956 Topps set before another sixties set.

If that happens, I'll be extemely pleased!

I am cracking up at the "couch cushion pattern" comment. Leave it to Topps to design such eye sores.

Nice work, man. That's awesome seeing all of those vintage cards together like that.

Very nice. Now the question, are they in numerical order in your binder, or just randomly inserted? Or perhaps, in the order you received them? They do not appear to be alphabetical.

Steve Gierman said...

They are in numerical order.

Nice looking set. The oldest team set I have completed is 1979 Topps so you have me by almost ten years. Very nice.
