Default 1968 Milton Bradley Win A Card Game

Could someone post the backs of a 1968 Topps Card and a 1968 Milton Bradley Win-A-Card Game Card next to each other so I can see the difference. ? Thanks

Thanks for the photo post. I must be a little color blind cause I don't see much difference. Thanks again.

Don't feel bad. The Milton Bradley vs Topps cards fool A LOT of people.....and that's with the cards staring them in the face.....

There’s definitely a color difference when you have them in hand.

Further complicated by the fact that there are color differences in the regular Topps backs, and the latter series have backs more similar to the MB backs, which results in some sellers erroneously or deceptively selling some later series Topps cards, including the Mantle, as MBs.

Agree with Mark that if you have the MB known checklist and have the cards in hand, the differences are evident. Best to buy them in person or from reliable and knowledgeable seller.

By the way, the Cox and and Brinkman yellow team variations listed for the regular set are actually just MB cards.

The first Hundley is a Milton Bradley that is brilliant yellow, the second Hundley is a Milton Bradley that is drab yellow, and the third Hundley is a Topps that is a first series gold color. Some of the Milton Bradley cards are a brilliant yellow that are easy to tell, and some are a drab yellow that you have to compare side by side with a Topps card to tell the difference. The front of the drab yellow MB Hundley has the white edge of a 1967 MB Football card to prove that it is an MB, the front of the brilliant yellow MB Hundley is well centered so that there is no white edge of a 1967 MB Football card.

Correction, the bottom white edge of the Hundley is the top of a Hot Rods card, not a 1967 Football card.
