Default Most Popular Topps Set from the 1960s

Hi, I am mainly a baseball card set collector, but I do collect some Topps Football from the 1960s.

There may have been a past thread(s) on this topic, so someone may want to point in that direction.

Or if not, I am interested in what folks think is the most overall popular set. I know the 1965 Topps Tall Boy Set featuring the AFL players is a standout and may rank as the most popular set from the 60s. In fact, I have a complete graded set from that year.

I am interested in starting another set from that decade. Besides 1965, what other Topps set would folks suggest (in terms of design, player selection, and overall appeal)?

The 1962 Topps ... to me it's one of the nicest but super tough with those Black boarders. Has some great cards like Ernie Davis, and Ditka.

Yea, it seems folks either love or hate the 1962 set.

Good point; in deed it is. I always kinda like the look of the 67 set as well with those colorful boarders.

65 is the best looking and coolest by far, but even with the Namath rookie the player selection is just lacking due to AFL only. My favorite is 63 -- some great rookies (Lilly Nitschke Jones) plus the usual greats.

Default 1962 and 1965

I completed the 1962 and 1965 sets. Both in NM (PSA 7). Condition. The 1962 set was far and away the hardest to put together in that grade, due to the black borders, but worth it to me.

I prefer the early 60s, specifically 1957.

While I like the 62s the best personally, in my ebay store the 69s followed by the 68s sell the quickest.

1968 is the best one. It has the first unified AFL-NFL issue and all of the Packers and Raiders are on special designed cards as the champs. My absolutely favorite set.
