Topps All-Star Rookie Cup Cards

Topps started naming All-Star Rookie teams in 1959, so the All-Star Rookie Cups appeared on Topps cards starting in 1960. While the All-Star Rookie teams have been selected every year since 1959, Topps did not commemorate the previous years top rookies on their cards in 1974 and from 1979 - 1985.

  1. I've been trying to add the 1964 Topps Pete Rose card to my collection for awhile now. Such a great looking card. This looks like a very cool project and there are a lot of great names on your checklist. What's the plan for guys like Strawberry, Coleman, and the other guys w/o Rookie Cup cards? Are you just looking for their 2nd year cards?
