Default Favorite 1960's Football Set

For all my fellow vintage football card collectors here, I am curious as to which set or sets (we can go up to two sets) are your favorites from the 1960's. This includes Topps, Fleer and Philadelphia sets of the decade.

For me, the 1969 Topps set is my favorite. When I was about 10 years old, my future brother in-law gave me about half of the set. I would look over those cards every day, studying the stats of each player. This was my first vintage set of any kind.

The John Hadl card is my favorite. I loved the fact though he was a quarterback, his jersey number was 21 not the traditional 12 or 14 like other QB's.

Thru the years I completed the set and even updated a few cards such as Namath and Starr because he wrote A.L. Football on the Namath card and N.L. Football on Starr's card.

I love the color of the set and the great mix of stars from both leagues.

The 1967 Topps set is my second favorite. I know it is not necessarily a very glamourous set but I am a HUGE AFL fan, I like the design of the set and the fact there were only 132 cards in the set to collect. Plus, being a pro wrestling fan back in the day, it has Wahoo McDaniel's only card as well as Ernie Ladd's last Topps card.

There are several great sets from all three companies during the decade. It was difficult to settle on just two but these are my two and I am sure everyone's favorites will vary.

The '62 set is an honorable mention for me, I really like it. Compared to the black bordered '71 Topps BB set, the 1962 set is nicer IMO.

Oof, tough question.

65 Toops, 61 Fleer, 62 Topps, 63 Fleer probably in that order. I love the mix of AFL and NFL in the 61 Fleer set, the backdrops and design, but hard to beat that tall boy set.....

I'll go with the 1963 Topps set: plenty of stars, some big rookies (Nitschke, Lilly, Jones), colored borders, and enough short prints and otherwise tough cards to make it a challenge. The "purple sky" variations are nice twist, too.

I love the 1967 and 1969 Topps, and the 1962 and 1963 Fleer. Since the 1969 set is the only one of the four that has both AFL and NFL players, I will rank it number one. I do prefer the first series over the second.

Oddly enough, my least favorite set of the 60's is the 65's. I guess that makes me the oddball...lol.

No, not an oddball at all as I am not a fan of the tall boys either. The colors are nice but I just don't care for the bigger size.
