The 1960 Topps Baseball set consists of an astonishing 572 cards, each measuring 2-1/2" by 3-1/2”. The cards are best remembered for their horizontal design and sun-drenched hues with a large color portrait or pose at the right two-thirds and a black-and-white action photograph at the left. The set was issued in three series (with the final series, #s 507-572, being the most difficult to secure) and is anchored by such future Hall of Famers as Ernie Banks (#10), Bob Gibson (#73), Carl Yastrzemski (#148), Willie Mays (#200), Stan Musial (#250), Willie McCovey (#316) and Mickey Mantle (#350). Two groups of rookie cards are included. The first are #s 117-148, which are the Sport Magazine rookies; the second group is called Topps All-Star Rookies. Rookies include Yastrzemski and McCovey. Notable variations include cards #375-440, which can be found with backs printed on either white or grey cardboard, with the white stock being less common.
