Card Show Pickup #20: 1968 Braves

I bought a nice little stack of 1968 Braves cards out of his 1968 box. I've always had mixed feelings about this set. I like the overall design, but I detest the borders. If they had sone literally anything other than that fake burlap sack border, I would love this set.

My pickups here include some of my favorite players from this period for the Braves: Aaron, Niekro and Alou. Cepeda would be joining the Braves not long after this, helping them to win the first ever NL West division crown in 1969.
