Card fact: Here is the Topps 1969 design, which is kind of a combination of the 1967 and 1968 Topps designs. I think it works pretty well, and would be one of the best sets of the '60s if not for all the blacked out caps in the set.
What I thought about this card then: Not in the collection.
What I think about this card now: It's interesting that after two absolutely dominating pitching displays the previous year, that two sluggers were named MVP in 1969. That lowering of the mound must have helped. Oh, and probably expansion, too.
Other stuff: This is the first card that features players who each have player cards in the 1975 set.
