1968 Topps Stand Up Football Cards

1968 Topps Stand Ups were inserts in packages of second series 1968 Topps football cards. The cards have perforations around the players' heads, such that kids could punch them out and stand them up. A lot of kids did so, of course. Because of this, and because the solid red bottoms readily show wear, the cards can be challenging to find in high grades.

For more details, see my blog article about the 1968 Topps Stand Up set.
