1967 Topps Baseball cards where the best
You nailed it man! '67 is the greatest looking set they ever did. Pictures actually look like good photographs. Backs are very easy to read and have an unusual vertical layout (only complaint is they have to sacrifice some stat columns to fit). I've been working on this set for about 5 years now and I'm about halfway there (Ex/NM to M). The Gibson is another amazing looking card. Always loved the Mays card. Cepeda, great looking MVP year card. Of course the Ryan and Koufax aren't really part of the '67 set. It's too bad Koufax didn't have a final card with his complete statistics. Curse Topps for that.
I just recently decided that I'm going to start collecting cards that have been written on and defaced by kids. Preferably, mustaches, buck teeth or possibly eye patches. With the prices of some of these older cards, it may be the only way for me to go. I'd love to get my hands on one of these.
