#206 - 1968 Most Valuable Players
Card fact: Topps features the 1968 set design, or the "burlap set" on this card. This is one of my least favorite card designs. But you've got to give the designers credit. It WAS different, if completely out of the blue.
What I thought about this card then: No knowledge of it.
What I think of this card now: Are those houses in the distance on the McLain card?
Other stuff: Nothing says "Year of the Pitcher" like both MVPs being pitchers. The only other time that has happened was in 1924 when Walter Johnson and Dazzy Vance won the leagues' top honors.
