Although I love all the Topps sets from the 60s, the 65 and 67 sets stand in a league of there own. The color, batting poses and smell of spring training from these sets is simply unrivaled. I’ll give the 67 set a slight edge over the 65 set due to tough high numbered series also encompassing of the Rookie Cards of Hall of Famers Rod Carew and Tom Seaver. The high numbered run is extremely difficult to acquire in high-grade, especially well centered examples. The Mantle card from the 65 set depicting the Mick’s batting pose is far superior to the 67 Mantle. The Rose card from both sets is equal in all respects, but Aaron’s 67 card is a classic. If you have any high-grade 67s your willing to trade, please let me know. If your not a trader and are willing to sell, please consider me. I may never finish this set, but it’s certainly worth the hunt.

By the way, I'm only looking to aquire SGC graded or raw 67s. I've seen far to many PSA 8s with dinged corners.

Old, dense-headed hammers are cool. Best nail pounders.

Hello dnorth and welcome to the boards!

I think you have picked the sweethearts of the sixties allright -- with one possible addition, '63. I also love the simplicity of the '67 design -- simple and stunning. However, in my mind, 'the 65 design would win in a photo-finish. There is something about the pennant waving on the card that I really enjoy.

Best of luck on your set!

Hello srs1a, I hope all is well. You have a much better start on the 68 set then I do on the 67. The Ryan/Bench Rookies are classic cards as well. I have a 68 set too, but ungraded. If my memory serves me correctly, we attempted to make a trade for my 68 SGC 96 Bird Belters card, but it didn't work out. My partial 67 set is similar in condition to yours, but I still have a long way to go. I have 150 or so 67s in NM/MT or better (keeping my fingers crossed) condition I'll be submitting to SGC in the near furure. The 62/63 sets are the toughest sets from the 60s, but I still perfer the 65/67 sets due to the color and photography. Glad to be on the board. 1967 Topps Set - SGC Registry

dnorth,

Your memory serves you well! I still need that card, so I may have to go back to the archives and see what tasty tid-bits I can find. While I love the '68 set because of all the associated memories, the design doesn't really compare to the ones that you mention.

If and when I ever finish up my '68 set, I will go back to my '63 set (mostly raw and nm/nm+) where I still need about 40 cards. I would love to do the '65 set, but would have to start from scratch, so it is probably out of reach.
