Amazing that Banks was able to hit 37 home runs that season despite missing a substantial portion of his right jaw

This thread might end up costing me money.
My favorite is Casey Teaches from 1964. As a Mets fan since 1973 it's perfect for me that it pairs the legend with a very young version of a player who I grew up watching.
Other favorites are the 1964 Tops in NL with Mays & Aaron (it would be a perfect card if it were 1957 when Willie was still in NY), 1957 Dodgers Sluggers, and 1966 Clemente, Aaron, and Mays (although it would have been nice if they had waited to snap Willie after he was done checking his phone).

Thanks for the thread.

"Casey Teaches" is a classic. 1964 was the peak year for the Old Guy Tutoring Young Player genre, with "Hitting Area" and "Bill's Got It" as well.

I love these as well. The '58 Mantle / Aaron card will always be one of my favorites. It was my first Mantle card, probably as an 11 year old or so back in the late 1980's.

I believe this is the original photo that was used to produce that card?

The 'floating heads' 1963 league leaders cards are some of my least favorite. Fortunately, they went to full shots in 1964............

When Fleer came out in 1981, I was thrilled to see the multi-player cards back out again. I thought they were the coolest thing ever!

Default Destruction Crew

Always loved the '59 Topps Destruction Crew card with Doby, Minoso, Colavito. Three of my favorite players, all while playing for my favorite team, and they look so happy together --

- Doby, the first to break the color barrier in the AL and under-appreciated HOFer
- Minoso, one of the best non HOFers, who sadly recently passed before getting elected (I'm confident he will)
- Colavito, my grandfather and mother's favorite player from the late 50s in Cleveland
