Collecting the 1960 Fleer Baseball Greats Card Set – Some Salty Dogs and No Pepper Grace This Small but Distinctive Issue
What the 79-card 1960 Fleer Baseball Greats set lacks in overall size it more than makes up for with legends such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Cy Young and, as the only active player in the set at the time, Ted Williams. The issue continues to spark strong interest for many collectors on the PSA Set Registry, who consider it a truly great offering. Read more in the following piece.

Collecting the 1999 PokÉmon Jungle 1st Edition Card Set – PokÉmon Expands to the Jungle

Collecting the 1956 Topps U.S. Presidents Card Set – Elected by Popular Vote as the Pinnacle of Presidential Issues
A reprint of the 1952 Bowman U.S. Presidents issue, the 1956 Topps U.S. Presidents card set employs the same artwork but with some changes to the text and design on the backs. Despite the repurposed design, however, this set still manages to rank amongst the most popular vintage presidential card issues due to its overall aesthetic appeal, historical value, availability, and modest size. Learn more about this 36-card offering in the following SMR article.
