1961 Topps

1961 Topps returned to a standard vertical format and grew to 587 cards using the now standard format of 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 (inches). Topps went crazy with specialty cards for the first time. Checklists (apart from team cards), League Leaders, and Topps Rookie All-Star trophies started with this set. The cards were printed in black and Army green on a dark colored card stock, which makes them pretty hard to read, even when they are in great condition. The backs don’t contain paragraphs, just “blurbs”.

  2. Nice to read that such training centres are the place to be, because in reality, most students do not fit the format of education. Especially now in the digital era, schools need fresh approaches for education. Thanks for the article. Freight Forwarding Software
