Default Fence Busters, Belters, Maulers & other multi-player cards

Those multi-player cards like "Buc Belters," "Tribe Thumpers" and "Mets Maulers" that Topps issued between 1957 and 1969 might be my favorite cards. As I have completed old sets I've also started acquiring duplicates of the multi-player cards to keep in a group by themselves as a separate project. So far I've got 86 of the 107 cards, ranging from high-demand issues like the '58 Mantle-Aaron card to mundane ones like the '67 Dennis Menke-Tony Cloninger card (which does feature Hank Aaron in the background; Hank is also in the background of the 1962 Mays-Mantle "Manager's Dream" card).

Lots of great players on these cards, but I think my favorites are the oddly titled ones like "Bill's Got It" and "Power For Ernie" and "Lindy Shows Larry."

Would love to hear anyone else's thoughts...

I agree, I love the multi-player cards and pick up nice ones whenever I can. I especially like the "Bird Belters" and "Managers Dream" with Clemente. I think the '57 "Dodger's Sluggers" is one of the greatest cards ever in my opinion. Great player combinations on a lot of these issues. And, definitely cheaper than some of the single big names. Best of luck on finishing out that run.

Neat project Geo. As a set collector I have them all but never gave them a lot of thought.

Although I don't have many, I do enjoy these cards as well. (Net 54 link below in sig)

This card, Mays, Clemente and Aaron, I seen fetched big bucks in a PSA 9 recently at one of the A/H's.

Great cards that are often under appreciated in my opinion. I have shared in other threads that I love the 58 Mantle / Aaron ws batting heroes card. But many are a great chance to own a card with 2 or more HOFers at a fraction of the price a card of just one of them.

Like I wrote in my net54 link below, "One of my all time favorites"

I agree with your other statement as well. They are perfect for the budget minded collector, but prices seem to be rising on them all the time.

That Clemente-Aaron-Mays is one of my all-time favorite cards. It's the only Topps card with all three of them together.

I wasn't aware of that?

Especially glad now that I own a copy!

Agree completely on these cards, they are awesome.

The 59' Topps multi cards have always been my favorites by far. I also think Fleer did an incredible job with those type of cards in the early 80s.

I've always loved the '62 Managers' Dream and '57 Dodgers' Sluggers (not mine pictured). Both are hard to find with good registration.
