1960 Topps Baseball Cards
1960 Topps Baseball Cards

Description

The 1960 Topps baseball card set includes 572 standard size cards, which measure 2½” by 3½”. The subsets for the 1960 Topps baseball cards are the rookie stars (116-146), Baseball Thrills (461-470), and the Sporting News All-Stars (551-572). The high number series, which is slightly more difficult to find, ranges from card number 507-572. The 1960 Topps Baseball set has aged well and remains popular with collectors. What had been a few years of competition-free baseball card releases from Topps came to an end in 1960. The Fleer Gum Company released an exclusive 80-card set dedicated entirely to the immortal Ted Williams. Not only did this keep Ted Williams from appearing in the Topps set, but it also re-awakened the possibility of a serious card competing with Topps for baseball card supremacy. Topps had thought the purchase of Bowman a few years back would help them maintain dominance for years to come, but the surprising upstart set from Fleer would put Topps back on alert.

Important Notes
