Default Trivia - 1960s Topps card numbers

I've been aware of this for many years, and am curious if anyone else has noticed it too. So I'll ask in the form of a trivia question:

Topps regular issue sets, 1960 through 1969, which player who had at least 7 regular cards during those years had the highest AVERAGE card number?

It isn't Mantle, but for clarification, this is what I mean:

Year Mantle
1960 350
1961 300
1962 200
1963 200
1964 50
1965 350
1966 50
1967 150
1968 280
1969 500


Average card number: 243

The guy I'm thinking of has an average card number over 400.

Just a wild guess, George Altman?

Yes, this is who I was thinking. When I started collecting cards seriously I noticed McCovey seemed to fairly consistently be in the later series and rarely in the first two or three.

Scary. Not the answer, that you knew it.

Can't disagree. Reminds me of when my daughter was in high school and was reading in the living room while I watched Star Trek. I started reciting the dialogue lines before they were uttered and she closed her book, stood up with large bug eyes, and backed out of the room.

Speaking of which, I bought this not long ago.
