Flashback Product of the Week: 1969 Topps Man on the Moon


With NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover landing this week, I thought the 1969 Topps Man on the Moon set would fit well for this post.  This set only consists of 55 cards.  Its not very large at all.  The photography covers a lot of the major space events that took place during the 1960s.  The front of each card comes with a brief description about the photo and the backs act as puzzle pieces.

Its not the most in demand vintage set, but sealed boxes still command serious prices.  One would cost about $1,000.00.


My favorite card from the whole set.  Wouldn’t it be cool if Topps got the astronauts to sign some of these and issue them as buybacks?
