1969 Topps Mini-Card Albums

1969 Topps Mini-Card Albums were inserts in packs of 1969 Topps football cards. There are 26 albums, one for each of the NFL and AFL teams. Each album has places to stick ten mini-cards, which were also inserts in the packs. The mini-cards came on panels of four; the full panels are now commonly called 1969 Topps 4-in-1 cards. The albums are numbered: first the 16 NFL teams, ordered alphabetically, then the 10 AFL teams, also ordered alphabetically.

Topps was not particular about the images they put on the album covers. As I noted in a blog article, 1969 Topps 4-in-1 Oddities, most of the covers picture players from different teams. Also, the cover images appear to be at least eight years old, because several of them also appear as inset photos on 1962 Topps football cards. You can see a few examples in another blog article, Recycled Images on 1969 Topps Mini-Card Albums.
