This effort, a disappointment in general when compared to the outstanding effort of the previous year, is nonetheless memorable for its one classic gem of a card: # 66 Ted Williams, one of the most storied cards in collecting history. Even the appearances of Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle in this same set are no match for the mystique that has surrounded the Ted Williams card since 1954.
