1961 Topps, National League 1960 Home Run Leaders

Check out this 1961 Topps, National League 1960 Home Run Leaders card featuring Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, Eddie Mathews,and Ken Boyer.

That's an impressive piece of cardboard! Banks, Aaron, and Mathews all went on to become members of the 500 Home Run Club. Boyer being the odd man out, not reaching the 300 mark in his career. Not that Boyer didn't have a tremendous career, but his 32 dingers in 1960 was the most he ever hit in a single season and he ended his career with 282 home runs.

I added this card to me Topps Hank Aaron collection recently at my LCS at one of their auctions. I don't remember exactly how much I paid for it, but it was probably $3-$4.


  1. These league leader's cards never sell for as much as they should, three or four bucks seems like a really good price, especially considering who's on the card.

  2. Awesome card! League leader cards are one of the best ways to build up your vintage collection with big names.
