1967 Topps Checklist - Cards That Never Were - 8th Series

I've been at this for just over a year now and this is my 8th series of 25 cards. That's 200 cards all together not including the checklists themselves. If you are wondering whose floating head that is, It is Bruce Pearson of the New York Mammoths, aka Robert DeNiro in "Bang The Drum Slowly". There are a lot of really good baseball movies but this is one of the all time greatest. It was filmed at Shea Stadium and Yankee Stadium. Some of the "extras" include Tony Perez, Brooks Robinson, Thurman Munson and Bobby Murcer.

  1. I'm going to appropriate your 1967 8th series checklist, and fill it with guys left out of that set, like Lenny Green, Tony Horton, Jay Ritchie, Bob Lillis, Gary Nolan, Roy White, Don Wilson, John Boozer, John Donaldson, Chuck Hartenstein, Jerry McNertney, Jim Roland, Ron Brand, Al Spangler, Julio Gotay, who am I missing? Oh yes, Athletic Rookies featuring Reggie Jackson.
