Default Vote - best Topps set

Strictly based on eye appeal alone, I am curious what most collectors consider Topps' finest year.

My vote - 1955

And then restrict it to only 1960's - I really like the 1965's.

Lordy, so difficult. Lessee from #1-5 I would have to say 52,54,55,67,71 and 63 for good luck. I like the 71's the best though, the other five are pick 'em.

My 5 in order: 52, 57, 67, 54 and 65. I am not too fond of any design after about 1969 and find most of the 70's dreary.

Strictly based on eye appeal, my vote for best all time:

1954 Topps-That #250 card of the kid is just gorgeous as well as many others.

Resrticting to only the 60's, my fav is 1965. Love those big and bold pennants with the team emblem.

1967. The perfect card IMO. If I restrict it to just '60s....hmmmmm.

For me, the 1953 is my favorite. I love the large "paintings" and overall design.

for 60s only, the 67 set. Simple, uncluttered design. The Mantle card has always been one of my favorite regular issues of his.
