Most people would rather have the basic Topps card since they're almost exactly the same (MBs have a shade different back color and some have the white stripe on the left side of the card). That's because more people are working on the basic Topps set than the Nolan Ryan rookie sets. Or you could check sold listings:

Both are pretty hard to find centered, so if you want either or, go for the most centered one.

Thank you, I am focusing my collecting on vintage cards rather than sets, I found a MB version less expensive than the topps which is why I was asking

The MB cards are significantly more rare than the regular version, but, as mentioned previously, there is generally more demand for the regular version, thus the price difference you observed.

Congrats on the pick up.

While some feel the MB cards are a separate set ( they are so listed in SCD), at least two of the MBs are officially listed as variations to the 1968 base set, Cox and Brinkman. In his article on MBs in SCD, Carlton has argued that all MBs, including the Ryan are variations to the main set ( I realize some have disagreed with that premise in prior threads). At this point I agree with others that the base Ryan gets more love, and most MBs in general end up being well handled cards in lesser condition since distributed with the game board. But if MBs get more recognition over time, either as a set or a variation, you could be glad you went the MB route
