For some reason that '63 Harkness was one of the toughest cards -- aside from superstars and high numbers -- when I was completing that set. I think the card's overall boredom factor (OBF) is mitigated somewhat by the spectacularly bad airbrush job on the inset photo.

I guess Harkness came to the Mets from the Pterodactyl's? LOL

I hated the 1973 boyhood photos. The photo quality was awful, and I couldn't have cared less what Catfish Hunter looked like when he was 6.

His eyes look like two piss holes in a snowbank, LOL.
Funny thing is, I read a few of Mickey's biographies (auto and otherwise). In one, I remember a passage about him stating precisely that. I guess many of the Topps photo shoots were scheduled early. He said there were a few where he was on a bender with the gang and completely hungover and he hated the cards that captured that. He said he hated two in particular but refused to name them specifically and saw them while signing all the time at the shows of the late eighties and early nineties.

My guesses were always the 1962 and the 1965! Gotta love the Mick...

LOL on the 1978 Topps Pete Rose.

Funny how you remember stuff like this, but I pulled that card back when I was a kid in 78 and thinking "cool I got a Pete Rose....sitting in the dugout..." and being somewhat disappointed. I was much happier in 1979 when I saw that card, like that's how you should do Pete Rose. At least his 78 RB card is decent.

LOL! I guess that kind of takes it off the boring list now.

BLECH designs (from an opinionated graphic designer)

Topps = 1957, 1958, 1961, 1966, 1968, 1970...

Any card featuring a hatless player... the "in action" cards..

Manager cards (exception: The 1960 manager cards were AWESOME with that pennant...)

GREAT designs

1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1960, 1965...

I also like the '63, '67, '71, and (yes) '72 sets... (after that, my interest trails)

Bowman 1950-'53 run was brilliant, too... (not so much the design of '53, but the photography was outstanding)

In general I don't like the hatless. But not all are bad.
