by theFalcon - 82 cards (Last updated on Feb 26, 2022)

1. 1961 Topps #144 Jim Coker

Coach Andy Cohen (39) in spring training.

2. 1961 Topps #179 Joe Koppe

Coach Ken Silvestri at Wrigley Field in 1959 or 1960.

3. 1961 Topps #185 Herb Score

Dick Donovan (22) at Comiskey Park in 1960.

4. 1961 Topps #532 Bob Hale

Ken Aspromonte (2), looks like spring training in 1960 or 1961.

5. 1962 Topps #48 Ralph Terry

Luis Arroyo (47) at Yankee Stadium

6. 1962 Topps #88 Ralph Houk

Yogi Berra at spring training

7. 1962 Topps #99 John Powell

Gus Triandos (11) at Yankee Stadium in 1961.

8. 1962 Topps #256 Elio Chacon

Frank Robinson (20)

9. 1962 Topps #324 Joe McClain

Assuming it's a Nat in the background, it's Dave Sisler at Yankee Stadium in 1961. There's a small chance it could be Tom Tresh or Jack Reed of the Yankess, but they barely played for NY that season.

10. 1962 Topps #434 Clay Dalrymple

A lot of guesswork here ... no. 45 must have been someone who didn't make the team wearing that number during the 1960-62 time frame. Wikipedia says Paul Brown wore no. 34 in 1961, but Baseball Reference disagrees. No. 15 is probably Joe Koppe, but Charley Smith is an outside possibility.

Yeah, I don't need to see a #8 to identify Yogi, LOL.

Cool Concept! I don't know haw modern you want to get in the future (since this says 60s & 70s), but here's a couple off the top of my head: (w/ John Cangelosi) (w/ Ellis Burks)

These are action shots, but there are a lot of cool cards featuring an out at 2nd, so that could also be a concept. Just a couple ideas that you could take or leave.

I'm adding about five cards at a time, which is enough work for me ... add in action cards from the '70s and I'll be doing this forever ... a separate list of action-only cards from the 60's and '70s would be more manageable in scope if anyone wants to take a crack at it ... here's a Pete Rose I discovered recently:
