    1968 Venezuela Topps Nolan Ryan - 1968 Mets Rookie Stars #177 SGC 40 VG 3 - The Finest SGC-Graded Example. A young Nolan Ryan is pictured alongside teammate Jerry Koosman as they share a rookie card together in 1968. Koosman had a nice 19 year career, but Ryan had a dominating 27 year career that earned him membership to Cooperstown. Offered is a very special example of his 1968 rookie card debut as it comes to us from central America from a Venezuelan Topps collector. This example displays the typical faded colors of these issues. These sets were made to be placed in albums. This is a strong and respectable example with glue stains/residue affecting the reverse. Graded SGC 40 VG 3. SGC has graded only three examples, this is pop one in VG with none higher!
