Default Best sequential grouping of players in a set

So I was pondering this question: what set has the greatest grouping of players in sequential order (be it numbered, or alphabetical in the case of the t206s)

To my mind, I think the '52 set has a pretty amazing sequential series of players in #s 311-315: Mantle, Robinson, Bobby Thomson, Campanella and Durocher. Four HOFers and a player responsible for arguably the most iconic moment in baseball history. Pretty stellar.

What say you all?

Default Sequence

Brian--this is probably not as tough as coming up with the worse sequence.

Your's is a pretty good list

1953 Topps #75-82:

75-Mike Garcia
76-Pee Wee Reese
77-Johnny Mize
78-Red Schoendienst
79-Johnny Wyrostek
80-Jim Hegan
81-Joe Black
82-Mickey Mantle

That's four hall of famers, plus a pitcher who has a very solid case for Cooperstown (Garcia), a Rookie of the Year, and a couple of all-stars.

I'm too tired to do it justice right now, but the 1933 Goudey set is chock-full of hall of famers; I'm sure there are plenty of good sequential groupings in there.

Default 1952 Topps

311 Mickey Mantle
312 Jackie Robinson
313 Bobby Thomson
314 Roy Campanella
315 Leo Durocher

Yes I realize Durocher made the HOF as a manager but 4 HOFers in five cards and the owner of perhaps the most famous homer in baseball history.

Not a bad five card sequence

Al - another one that would be interesting, the 1959 Fleer set. 80 cards of Ted Williams. I'd say that's a great run!

Cheers,
Patrick

The first 40 cards of the 1957 Topps set contains 14 HOFers including Williams, Aaron, Mays, Robinson rookie, Drysdale rookie, Mazeroski rookie, Berra, and more. I've always been impressed with that grouping.

1972 has a good one but for one outlier. The spaces between the numbers are the In Action cards:

433 Johnny Bench
435 Reggie Jackson
437 Maury Wills
439 Billy Williams
441 Thurman Munson
443 Ken Henderson (messed it up)
445 Tom Seaver
447 Willie Stargell
