Default Which regular issue Topps set is your favorite/least favorite.

I really dislike the 73 topps set. My favorites are a 3 way tie 52(of course) 60 and 72. Yours? Chime in. Dave

My favorite is the 1963 set. I love the colors and it includes the Pete Rose RC.

My least favorite is all of the recent sets that have the same boring white border.

Favorites in order:

'71

'70

Least favorite
'61
'73

'58
'59

IMO Topps best runs were '54-56 and '65-67, their worst '57-62.
'57 has a good design but the photography is so muddy, a problem that plagues the '61 set as well. The photography is '73 is just bad- bad lighting, bad composition, bad everything. Reggie Jackson's card is a prime example.

My favorites: 1980, 1971, 1956, 1974. I don't know why, I've always loved the '80 set.

Least favorite: probably 1962. Ugh.

Seems to be a lot of hate for the 1973 set. I actually kinda like it. I really like the Clemente, for sentimental reasons.
