If you were to crown one baseball card as the king of the 1960's would you pick the 1968 Topps Nolan Ryan rookie card?
It's a tough debate...
There are several great ones:
The 1960 Topps Carl Yastrzemski rookie.
The 1967 Topps Tom Seaver rookie.
The 1969 Topps Reggie Jackson rookie.
But none of those compare to the 1963 Topps Pete Rose rookie and 1968 Topps Nolan Ryan rookie.
And between those two, I'd say it's very close but eventually I'd have to crown the 1963 Topps Pete Rose rookie as the best and most important card of the 1960's.
That said, the 1968 Topps Nolan Ryan rookie is an incredible card and one of the hobby's most valuable baseball cards.
And to make things even more challenging, there are three other versions of his rookie card printed separately for collectors to chase.
