The answer for me is always '56.

Great photos, large cards, 34 HOFers out of 340 cards, all of the Bowman stars together with the Topps stars. The peak of creativity with massive competition before they became complacent for the next 20+ years and the designs became less and less intriguing.

For me it's 1978 - it's the year I started collecting, and learning about the sport and MLB. Got my first cards as a mini uncut sheet in a Dynamite Magazine - Darrell Porter, Al Oliver, Tony Perez and Cecil Cooper (I know now there were duplicates of 2 but those were lost as soon as I got them).

I love the cursive team names, the manager cards, the all-star shields and the quality images. Even today, the cards of Doug Ault, Ted Simmons, Biff Pocoroba, Ed Halicki, Jerry Koosman, Jim Sundberg, Jim Rice, Carl Yastrzemski, George Brett, Rich Chiles, Chet Lemon, Reggie Jackson, Ron Guidry and others really stand out.

Still remember a few cards from my first pack, too - Rick Manning, Jose Baez, George Hendrick, Louis Tiant, and the Sparky Lyle RB.

The last and toughest card was Gary Ross - and he never even played after 1977. Had to order a complete set from Renata Galasso to get him.

Speaking of which, does anyone know whatever happened to her business?

My favorite post WW II sets would go something like this:

'53 Bowman. Yes, I know it's not a Topps set, but it's still the gold standard, imo for vintage. My only complaint is that this set wasn't done in '55. How good would that have been with the additions of Aaron, Kaline, "Mr. Cub", Koufax, Killebrew and Clemente?)

'75 Topps. A bit of an outlier among Topps sets. So colorful, and what a selection of rookies. Robin Yount's my guy; I also am a big fan of Brett and Carter. So many incredible veteran players in that set, from Aaron to Yaz.

'80 Topps. I know the question is pre-'80 Topps sets, but it seems like a bit of a weird cutoff for me. '81 is, to me, the beginning of the modern card era. That's when Donruss and Fleer came in/back. '80 was the last time there was just the one set, and the 1980 Topps set is one of my favorites. It just looks really cool, to me. I would like to put together the entire set in a PSA 8-9.



'71 Topps. I like the black borders. Some of my favorite cards are in this set. The Clemente has always resonated with me. Love the Munson, too.

Either '56 Topps, '52 Topps or '60 Topps (like the horizontal format) would be next.

Definitely agree with 1971 and 1975, probably my two favorite 1970's sets.
