1960 Topps — Three More Cards to Set Completion!!

The title says it all. After over 25 years of trading and buying, I am nearing the completion of my 1960 Topps set in EX or better condition. The only cards I lack now are:

1960 Topps #300 Hank Aaron

1960 Topps #563 Mickey Mantle All Star

1960 Topps #565 Roger Maris All Star

The 1960 Topps set is one of the few Topps sets in which most of the cards have a horizontal design. The only other years Topps did this was in 1955 and 1956 when the cards were a bit larger than the standard size. To this day, the 1960 Topps set remains as the only standard sized set with a horizontal design produced by Topps. This is something I would like Topps to consider in the future – another horizontal design for their flagship set. With today’s technology, I can see how popular the set could be with crisp, horizontal photos – just like Topps did back in 1991 with the introduction of Topps Stadium Club.

What do you think? Think Topps should go with a horizontal design again? I would like to know your thoughts. Please let me know.

Thanks!
