A ton of "Hatless Wonders" in this set. Among the Twins, and expansion Senators and Angels, tough to find a guy with a hat. Or a hat that's not airbrushed.

This is the first set I 'completed.' I started as a kid when the cards were new and fortunately my mother never threw them away. Actually she never threw anything much away, but that's a different story. When the hobby got hot again in the early 1980s I got all my cards and eventually finished the set. It went in a binder and up on a shelf while I collected a lot of other things. Only recently have I thought about the errors and variations that have surfaced since I worked on the set, so I'm starting to track those down now.

I do have a question about card #461. It shows here as Smokey Burgess, but I have a Mickey Mantle Thrills card with that number. It's not shown as a duplicate number or error in the database. Ideas?

This set is from my birth year. Conservative but nice design.
The picture takes up most of the front which is nice.

One of the last '60s sets I started collecting along with the 1964 Topps set.

This is the first set of cards I ever bought. I thought it was neat because some of the packs were wrapped in cellophane. I could see at least two of the cards and I bought packs with cards I needed. I was 9 and I bought them at the local drugstore. I still bought the other packs because of the gum, though!!!
