1969 Topps

In 2007 I returned to collecting trading cards again since stopping at the age of 13 in 1994. When I started again, my Dad decided to give me his collection, which included a few hundred dusty Topps baseball cards from the late 60's and early 70's from when HE was a kid. Now, I've decided to complete the 1969 Topps set with a good start of about a third of the set.

Final Card: Bob Chance
As with my 1966 and 1968 blogs, I'm down to the last half-dozen (+/-) players whose final card is in this set.Bob Chance (#523) was a 1st baseman for the Indians and Senators in the mid-1960s. After being...
