To kick off a new decade, 1960 Topps baseball cards hit the market with a new design concept that Topps hadn’t tried before.
Horizontal layouts were something they’d featured before, sure.
But this time, the cards featured a split-pane look, dual player images, and player names where every other letter alternated in color.
Along with the usual key cards of Mantle, Aaron, Mays, and Clemente the rookie cards of Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey headline the set.
It’s a set full of color and great eye appeal that many collectors love and enjoy to this day.
