Complete Topps 60 Greatest Cards of All-Time List 62
The list is filled with plenty of great cards, but at the same time there are some extremely questionable appearances, especially cards like the 1987 Topps Mark McGwire, it feels like there's a few too many steroid guys on the list. It would have also been nice if each player was limited to 1 or 2 appearances. What are your final thoughts on the list? Below are a handful of cards I would have liked to have seen make the list.

  • Complete Topps 60 Greatest Cards of All-Time List 631955 Harmon Killebrew
  • 1957 Frank Robinson
  • 1967 or 1968 Rod Carew (the '68 is one of my favorite vintage cards)
  • 1957 Brooks Robinson
  • 1952 Andy Pafko (possibly the most glaring omission)
  • 1978 Paul Molitor
  • 1976 Dennis Eckersley
  • 1960 Willie McCovey
  • 1968 or 1969 Johnny Bench (the '69 Bench is one of my favorite vintage cards)
  • 2001 Ichiro
  • 2002 Joe Mauer
  • 1961 Juan Marichal
  • 1954 Al Kaline
  • 1975 Robin Yount

    The title should be changed to the “Top 60 Baseball Cards of all time” cause there is now way that the the 54/55 Topps #8 Gordie Howe doesn’t make this list or a handfull of other hockey cards.

    Howe about putting together a REAL top 60 card list?? that would be interesting.

  2. Author

    @ Chris. Love it! That is one of the best cards from any sport of all time. 69 Bench should be on the list. 01 Ichiro definitely should be on the list. I’d like to see 64/65 Phil Niekro on the list also.

  3. Author

    Also forgot this one 1952 Eddie Mathews.

  4. Author

    @Ben Barron: Nice call, totally forgot about that one!

  5. Author

    1975 Topps Robin Yount deserves to be on this list.

  6. Author

    There are some really nice cards in the 60, but it would be nice if they cut down the player repeats a little bit.

    And the Mantle rookie would have more impact as #1 if we were beaten over the head with Mantle in every Topps set.

  7. Author

    @cardsplitter: I couldn’t agree more, when I see the ’52 Mantle I don’t think of the ’52 Mantle, I think of how many times I’ve gotten a reprint.

  8. Author

    @cardsplitter The 52 Mantle isn’t his rookie card.

    I’m surprised the 72 Fisk isn’t in there.

  9. Author

    Wow. How can 2 cocaine ruined players make the list and Harmon Killebrew’s 1955 Rookie card or his fantastic 1962 Sends One Into Orbit card not??? I guess that old saying is right; Nice Guys Finish Last! Get Well Harmon. You can beat the cancer! Keep Swinging!

    Not a terrible list, but some are very questionable. The Jeter RC, for instance, makes some sense because of the player but that card was hardly “memorable”. I understand that they threw out some rookies just because, but I don’t think that made them memorable topps cards. Now the 1986 Jim Leyland…now we’re talking!

  11. Author

    umm…. 1962 Topps Roger Maris it is a historic card alot more then some bonds garbage

  12. Author

    and i’ll take a Killebrew over a Puckett any day

  13. Author

    How can you argue if this was fan voted. 56 mantle is one of my favs and the 64 rose rightly better than his 63 rc. Love the team logos on the 50’s cards and topps colorful designs in 50/60’s. FUN!
