1968 Topps NL Stolen Base Leaders: Lou Brock, Maury Wills, Joe Morgan

In 1967 it was Lou Brock atop the NL in stolen bases again, this time with 52. Brock also got his first All Star start in 1967. Maury Wills and Joe Morgan were tied for second with 29 swipes each. Although Wills stolen base tally was down, his other offensive stats were solid as ever. The speedster went from leading off and playing shortstop for the Dodgers in 1966 to batting second and playing 3rd base for the Pirates in 1967. Joe Morgan at 23 years old had the highest stolen base total of his young career with 29. He would eventually eclipse that total many times over.
