1956 Topps - is the most drop dead gorgeous cards I have ever seen.

1963 Topps set - Very colorful and my birth year set. It was a dream come true to complete this set.

1971 Topps set - the very first year I was involved in collecting,

1959 Topps set - The very first vintage set I ever finished. I recall like yesterday picking up the Al Kaline All Star card at a show (there was no EBay then!)

1954: My first vintage set.

1971: My first year collecting.

1976: My favorite year in baseball. I was 11 and the Yankees won the pennant. I hated the 75 set design and thought the 76 set was just a burst of fresh air. And the All Time All Stars are one of my favorite Topps subsets.

Those 1976 All Time All Stars are what started me collecting vintage cards. Why get a Dale Murphy card when you can get a Pie Traynor?

on any given day....

1) 63 or 66 or 67
4) 54
5) prob 58.

I like the color contrast of these sets. although I know 58 & 63 has their detractors. 66 too. 54 & 67 universally liked. Picked 58 over 59 and 62.

never liked horizontal format so 55 56 and 60 aren't collected. 61 is bland and I think very plentiful except for the final series. 64 and 65 just ok.

Long term collector here.

thx bill

In some semblance of order:

1) 1953
2) 1957/1955
4) 1954/1960
6) 1964

Honorable mention to 1958; I don’t like the base cards, but do like the All-Star set.

Agreed. The design of 56T is a thing of absolute beauty. And the player selection that year is star-studded as well. Probably my favorite set of all time.
