The 1961 Golden Press set containing 33 cards is one of my favorite small sets from the 60s as it is loaded with HOFers, both pre and post war.

1958 Topps all-star aubset is one of the best. Displays really nicely too. But yes, if the Mantle doesn't scare you off, Red Heart is a great choice.

When I saw the title I thought 41 play ball. It's more than 30 cards, but less than 100 and you have a pretty cool complete set.

So far I am considering (may end up doing a few of them or even all of them eventually):

54 Red Heart
61 Golden Press
68 Topps 3-D

Thanks for the Play Ball and Stand Up suggestions. I want to start with the smaller sets first. Thanks to you all and if there are any more, send em my way.

I saw 1909 E95 and 1932 US Caramel too as possibilities.

You may wanna take a look at the checklist and prices on the 3D. Other than Clemente, which will cost you an absolute mint, the player selection isn't great. Tony Perez is the only other HOFer.

Also, the '64 Topps Giants set. Awesome photos and very reasonably priced. You can pick up a Mantle for <$40. I'm currently working on an autographed set of these, though I doubt I'll ever complete it.

And don't overlook the Fleer Ted Williams set.
3rd vote for 1954 Red heart.

I‘d also consider
1. 1969 topps deckle edge (Mays, Clemente, Gibson, Yaz, Brooks)
2. 1967 topps pinups
3. 1963 fleer. Small-ish, with good stars (Clemente, Mays, Koufax, Brooks)

You can add one HOFer and an extra card if you include the Robinson Prototype . It is my favorite Topps set, but it is pricey and some cards are easy to find and others not so much. There are 3 proof cards too, but no major stars there either. As far as I know, Topps did not produce that type 3D card again until 2011 as a sub group of their Lineage offering.

I'm already doing 69 Deckle. Thanks for that.

Adding 67 pinups to the list of possibles for sure!

Probably bigger than you want but pretty easy to complete at a reasonable price, depending on condition... the 1963 Fleer set. Several stars and neat design.
