Here are the 1968 Topps inserts - a deck of 33 playing cards. These cards measure 2 1/4" x 3 1/4". I don't remember which series these were inserted in. Unlike the 1969 deckle-edge insert cards, these cards aren't included on one of the checklists.
If I remember correctly, I got all these cards in 1968, but the Carl Yastrzemski card has not yellowed like all my others have, so maybe I got that one much later.
Notable stars of that time missing from this set are Bob Gibson, Juan Marichal, Willie McCovey, and Lou Brock.
Break-down by team:
3 - Pirates, Red Sox, Twins
2 - Phillies, Cardinals, Giants, Astros, Braves, Orioles, Tigers, White Sox
1 - Cubs, Dodgers, Reds, Yankees, Senators, Indians, Athletics, Angels
0 - Mets (Tommy Davis was traded to the White Sox in December '67)
RIP - Jesus Alou

Its nice to see the entire set together like you've got them. Thanks! Another notable star that is AWOL is Ernie Banks.
I played with this set constantly - wow, to see them all. I remember distinctly that the Yaz card felt different from the others - stronger card stock - maybe that's the reason it hasn't yellowed with age?
