[quote=Exhibitman;1776990]I am pleased that All Star cards have been revived in the modern context even as inserts (I know, ewww, gross):

Back in the 70s I ordered cards from a guy in Illinois and twice he sent me one of these Mantle cards as a bonus.

Not expecting very high grades, but in Bobby's latest group submission I've included 5 Mantle All Star cards from the years talked about in this thread -- 1958 (2), 1959, 1960 and 1961.
Check out my bucket(s). Virtually everything is available for trade:

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

I don't care for the base card design for the 1960 Topps set, but the All Star cards that year are very cool -- the big "60," the black shadow behind the cut-out photos, the write-up and cartoon on back. Plus the mystique/difficulty of the high numbers. As a kid collecting in the '70s, my friends and I had a fair amount of 1950s and '60s cards but I don't think I ever laid eyes on an actual 1960 or 1961 All Star card, or many of the other high numbers, until much later.

I agree George, I have no interest in collecting the '60 set, but I do have the All-star subset complete. The '60 set is my favorite, followed by '61 and than '69 (good call Adam).
