Land of the Giants: Test Set Topps - 1968
Notes: This card series is one of the scarcest issues of the modern era, was distributed only to a limited audience and was never mass-marketed. Wrappers were large stickers attached to waxed paper. Not quite so scarce was a 55-card set distributed under the A&BC Gum label in 1969, which used much of the material found in the test set but in a different configuration. Thanks much to Anthony Cole for the original list! American Card Catalog reference is R710-31. Scans are posted at the Vintage Non- Sports Cards gallery.
