Here's a 1968 MB Holtzman with an extremely bright yellow back that should be easy to tell.

Not only do some sellers have a problem telling apart which 68s are MBs and which are not, professional grading companies also seem to not be able to tell. I wonder how many more of the 68 Topps/MB Pete Rose cards are out in circulation besides the one the PSA labeled (obviously mistakenly) as a MB card.

What's the story with these MB cards? This is the first I've heard of it.

I wish, I found the image on Google. I believe it's a virtual sheet that was compiled by an expert on 1968 Milton Bradley cards through extensive research.

I saw a rerun of Pawn Stars where someone brought in the entire game. The biggest cards he had were Gaylord Perry, Brooks Robinson, and Joe Namath.

Default Shore strip on MB boarders

Anyone know if the top row cards on the sheet ever have a white strip or are they immune?
