    1968 Topps Baseball High Grade Near Set (560/598) With 449 SGC Graded Cards! With a border that appears to be a burlap, this issue is well known for having condition issues from chipping and is prone to showing wear. Thankfully that is far from the case with this blazing high grade set. This almost condition anomaly will certainly catapult one lucky collector the upper heights of the SGC Set Registry.
