As much as I love the earlier Micks, especially the '57 , room has to be saved for the 1968 and his final, 1969 which, of course, displays his full career statistics.

Default Regular issue list

1. 1952 Topps
2. 1951 Bowman
3. 1953 Topps
4. 1956 Topps
5. 1952 Bowman
6. This is a tough call should easily be the 1953 Bowman but this card has less demand then its Beauty would have one guess. This set despite its beauty has been fairly stagnant for years. Due for a price surge. But the 1957 Topps and 1961 topps have a big demand for a fairly easy cards, and high grade the 1962 topps deserves attention. If I had to make the call I'd go with the 1953 Bowman.

I agree on the first three but would replace the Bowmans with the Red Heart, Oklahoma Today, or 60 Venezuelan.

Checking today's ranking, I see the following in order:

1953 Topps
1953 Bowman
1951 Bowman
1956 Topps
1954 Red Heart
1961 Topps

There are several cards that could go in and out of the last spot, but The Mick's 1961 card, which was in the hand of kids during the summer of '61 and the chase of Babe's record, gets the nod.
Working Sets:
  • 1957 Topps - 291/407
  • 1965 Topps - 402/598
  • 1964 Topps Giants auto'd - 49/60
  • 1972 Topps - 749/787
  • T206 SLers, Virginia League 7/12

Completed Sets:
Baseball - 1954 Redheart, 1956, '60, '61, '66, '67, '70 - '89 Topps
Football - 1970, '75, '76, '77, '78, '79 Topps
Basketball - 1971/'72 Topps, 1986/'87 Fleer
