1960s baseball cards worth money

1960s baseball cards worth money DEFAULT

Look back on the popular decade for cards with the top baseball rookie cards of the 1960s.

The 1960s were an intense period for America. Firmly entrenched in the Cold War, people had to cope with the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the Vietnam War. The Cuban Missile Crisis brought the world to the brink of another massive war. The Civil Rights movement brought about tremendous change. The decade concluded with the space race and Neil Armstrong walking on the moon.

Baseball cards provided a much-needed distraction during the tumultuous times. Today, we look back at collecting during this period and connect it with sandlot games, riding bikes with banana seats and hard-nosed trade negotiations.

The 1960s saw several legendary players make their cardboard debuts. Many of the rookie cards from this era featured multiple players. In retrospect, it makes for some odd combinations as all-time greats are almost always paired with players who made little to no lasting impression on the game. But it's not like there were a lot of options for baseball card collectors back then.

We've compiled a list of the 10 best baseball rookie cards from the 1960s. To be consistent, we used prices from cards graded an 8 by PSA or BVG. To avoid player duplication, we stuck to just Topps cards. Many of these players also have O-Pee-Chee rookie cards.

Top 1960s Baseball Rookie Cards

10. 1968 Topps Johnny Bench RC #247 with Ron Tompkins

There's something about Johnny Bench and his backward baseball cap that captures the nostalgic sensibilities of the 1960s. Relaxed, informal and ready to play, it screams "baseball." A key part of the Big Red Machine, the catcher remains one of the most beloved players of his generation. Bench shares his rookie card with pitcher Ron Tompkins. He appeared in 40 total games, none for the Reds, and won none of them.

9. 1963 Topps Willie Stargell RC #553

The 1979 World Series MVP, Willie Stargell helped lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to six postseason appearances. The Hall of Famer and fan favorite finished his career with 475 home runs. His 1963 Topps rookie card is part of the rarer high series, which helps its overall value. Brock Davis, Jim Gosger and John Herrnstein are also on the card.

8. 1960 Topps Willie McCovey RC #316

A Giants icon, Willie McCovey made a splash from the very start of his career. He was named the 1959 National League Rookie of the Year despite appearing in just 52 games. In that time, he hit .354 and knocked out 13 home runs. Over the next couple of decades, McCovey continued to be one of the game's most dangerous hitters, finishing his career with 521 home runs. McCovey is one of the few players from the decade to appear by himself on his rookie card.

7. 1960 Topps Carl Yastrzemski RC #148

A leader in virtually every major offensive category in Boston Red Sox history, Yastrzemski remains one of the franchise's most popular figures. The 18-time All-Star and seven-time Gold Glove winner spent his entire career with Boston. He made history in 1967, winning the Triple Crown by leading the American League in batting average, home runs and runs batted in. The 1960 Topps Carl Yastrzemski rookie card is part of the Rookie Star subset and doesn't feature any other players.

6. 1962 Topps Lou Brock RC #387

One of baseball's best base runners, the 1962 Topps Lou Brock rookie card pictures him with the Chicago Cubs. However, the speedy outfielder is best known as a member of the Cardinals. He was traded to St. Louis during the 1964 season. At the time, it looked as though the Cardinals were out of the playoff hunt. However, Brock was an instrumental part in the team winning the NL pennant on the final day of the season. The Cardinals would then go on to capture the World Series in seven games over the Yankees. Brock was both the single-season and career stolen bases leader until Rickey Henderson broke both records.

5. 1967 Topps Rod Carew RC #569 with Hank Allen

Over the course of his career, Rod Carew was one of baseball's most consistent hitters. In 19 seasons, he hit less that .300 just four times -- during his first two and his last two seasons. Carew won the AL batting title seven times and finished with an impressive .328 career average. The 1977 AL MVP was inducted into Cooperstown in 1991. The 1967 Topps Rod Carew rookie card also features Hank Allen. He had a seven-year career but had no notable accomplishments.

4. 1969 Topps Reggie Jackson RC #260

One of baseball's most dangerous hitters, not to mention biggest personalities, of the 1970s, Reggie Jackson is a baseball icon. Jackson's status reached mythical proportions in 1977 after blasting three home runs in Game 6 of the World Series. Today, Jackson remains extremely popular with collectors. He was a big part of Upper Deck's early years, appearing on the hobby's first pack-inserted autograph card in 1990. The 1969 Topps Reggie Jackson rookie card is instantly recognizable despite its somewhat plain appearance.

3. 1967 Topps Tom Seaver RC #581

Tom Seaver is one of the game's greatest pitchers. A key face on 1969 World Series-winning "Miracle Mets," he finished his career with 311 wins and 3,640 strikeouts. Seaver is currently the only player in Cooperstown to be inducted as a member of the Mets. The pitcher's iconic status is not bestowed on Bill Denehy, the player he shares his rookie card with. Appearing in 49 games over three seasons, the pitcher won just one game. The 1967 Topps Tom Seaver rookie card is part of the high series, which is considered to be rarer than earlier series. This helps its value as well.

2. 1968 Topps Nolan Ryan RC #177 with Jerry Koosman

One of the most popular and iconic cards of all-time, the 1968 Topps Nolan Ryan rookie card has actually come down in price from its peak during his playing days. However, that was also when the hobby was also at its peak and the flame-throwing pitcher was racking up some impressive records and feats. Baseball's all-time strikeout king remains in the public eye as the owner of the Texas Rangers, a team on the cusp of a World Series. Should the team win a championship, it will give Ryan's rookie some added attention and could provide for a bit of a price bump.

1. 1963 Topps Pete Rose RC #537 with Pedro Gonzalez, Ken McMullen and Al Weis

Congratulations, Al Weis! You've got the best baseball rookie card of the 1960s. I know you're shocked. In your acceptance speech, just be sure to thank Pete Rose because, let's be honest, he's the reason that you've got this lofty honor. Rose may not be in baseball's Hall of Fame, but if there's ever one for baseball cards, the game's all-time hit king will be there. Featuring four heads and no necks, the high-number card is viewed as one of the most iconic in the hobby's history.

1960 Topps Baseball Cards: Values, Checklist and Set Info


1960 Topps Baseball Card 2nd Series Cello Box

To kick off a new decade, 1960 Topps baseball cards hit the market with a new design concept that Topps hadn’t tried before.

Horizontal layouts were something they’d featured before, sure.

But this time, the cards featured a split-pane look, dual player images, and player names where every other letter alternated in color.

Along with the usual key cards of Mantle, Aaron, Mays, and Clemente the rookie cards of Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey headline the set.

It’s a set full of color and great eye appeal that many collectors love and enjoy to this day.

That said, here is a complete guide to everything you need to know about these legendary baseball cards.

1960 Topps Baseball Card Values

The first thing most collectors ask is: how much are 1960 Topps cards worth?

Individually, the value of the card could be anywhere from less than a dollar to several thousand dollars.

It just depends on which card it is and its condition.

Here is a quick look at some estimated values of key and common cards in this set depending on their condition:

1960 Topps Baseball Card Values For Commons and Key Hall of Famers

One of the quickest ways to determine a card's value is if it has been professionally graded by Professional Sports Authenticator.  They publish their own price guide, the Sports Market Report (SMR), to help determine your card's value.

According to the PSA SMR current market values are:

PSA 9 MINT #350 Mickey Mantle: $22,000

PSA 1 POOR Common Card: Less than $1

That's quite the range so you can see it really just depends on many factors.

And an entire 1960 Topps complete set could be worth a couple thousand dollars in good condition or well into the five figure range if the cards are in high grade.

Key Cards in the 1960 Topps Set

Big names like Mantle, Aaron, Mays, Clemente and other Hall of Famers help headline a set that featured two of the great rookie cards of the 1960's: the Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey rookies. Error cards in this set are mainly limited to uncorrected dates of birth that were printed on the backs of maybe twenty cards or so. So, it's not a set full of too many quirks and is remarkably clean overall. 

Let's take a look at a dozen of the most sought after cards overall:

#350 Mickey Mantle

Mantle is usually the most expensive card in any set in which he was featured and the 1960 Topps set was no exception. Personally, I think it's one of his better-looking cards from the 1960's and features great coloration and some nice images of the Mick.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $22,000

1960 Topps #350 Mickey Mantle Baseball Card

#300 Hank Aaron

Aaron is another one of those names that you see high up at the top of most every set in which he was featured. The homerun slugger doesn't look too intimidating on this card but it's a key Hank Aaron baseball card nonetheless.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $17,500

1960 Topps #300 Hank Aaron Baseball Card

#148 Carl Yastrzemski Rookie Card

One of two key rookie cards in the set, the Carl Yastrzemski rookie card was part of the Sport Magazine Rookie Stars subset which we'll cover later. Yastrzemski didn't actually play in 1960 nor did he ever play a game in his career at second base even though that's the position that Topps listed for him.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $15,000

1960 Topps #148 Carl Yastrzemski Rookie Card

#316 Willie McCovey Rookie Card

Despite only playing 52 games during the 1959 season, McCovey played well enough to earn Rookie of the Year honors that year. His 1960 Topps rookie card was featured as one of the All-Star Rookies, the subset of cards numbered #316 -325.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $10,250

1960 Topps #316 Willie McCovey Rookie Card

#200 Willie Mays

Willie Mays baseball cards are loved by many collectors and this one is no exception. It may not be his most valuable card overall but it still can be quite expensive if it's in top shape.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $7,500

1960 Topps #200 Willie Mays baseball card

#326 Roberto Clemente

Not far behind Mantle, Aaron and Mays, you'll typically see Roberto Clemente baseball cards high atop many collectors' wishlists. Known for being a genuinely great guy, he was one of the game's most popular players on and off the field. His tragic death in an airplane crash cut his playing career and life way too short.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $4,800

1960 Topps #326 Roberto Clemente Baseball Card

#10 Ernie Banks

"Mr. Cub" won the hearts of many Cubs fans for the pure joy and energy that he brought to the game. Not to mention he was a heck of a ball player. This one is one of the more vibrant Ernie Banks baseball cards you can find.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $3,300

1960 Topps #10 Ernie Banks Baseball Card

#73 Bob Gibson

Gibson struck fear into the minds of opposing hitters as an overpowering pitcher. While his dominance wouldn't kick in until years later, this second year Bob Gibson baseball card is a key in commemorating the 1960 season overall.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $2,200

1960 Topps #73 Bob Gibson Baseball Card

#50 Al Kaline

Another key Hall of Famer in the set, "Mr. Tiger" can be quite expensive if you can find his card in top shape. Al Kaline baseball cards are arguably the second most desirable of any Detroit Tiger behind Ty Cobb. Luckily for collectors, they don't cost nearly as much, though.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $2,000

1960 Topps #50 Al Kaline baseball card

#1 Early Wynn

Early Wynn was a Hall of Famer who racked up 300 wins and earned 1 Cy Young Award over his career. However, you may be surprised to see him among the keys to this set. As card #1, however, his was one of the more susceptible to wear and tear. Hence, the high dollar amounts for top grade specimens of this card

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $2,200

1960 Topps #1 Early Wynn Baseball Card

#250 Stan Musial

One of the greatest hitters of all-time, Stan Musial baseball cards are quite undervalued overall, in my opinion. For some reason, their prices just don't reflect how good he really was. This one shows Musial with his classic half-smile and makes for an overall great card.

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $1,500

1960 Topps #250 Stan Musial baseball card

#343 Sandy Koufax

Last but not least on the list of key cards in this set is my favorite pitcher of all-time. Although Clayton Kershaw is giving him a run for his money. Sandy Koufax baseball cards are consistently among the most valuable to collect as far as pitchers are concerned. 

Estimated PSA 9 Mint Value: $1,500

1960 Topps #343 Sandy Koufax baseball card

Subsets and Other Unique Cards

Topps included several different types of subsets and other unique cards in this set to keep things interesting for collectors. 

Sport Magazine 1960 Rookie Stars (#117 - 148)

These were the first of two types of rookie cards in the set. Their design and color scheme make them easily stand out from the base cards. Yastrzemski is by far the most expensive of the group that also features rookies of fellow Hall of Famers Frank Howard and Jim Kaat.

1960 Topps #148 Carl Yastrzemski Rookie Card
1960 Topps #132 Frank Howard Rookie Card
1960 Topps #136 Jim Kaat Rookie Card

Managers (#212 - 227)

These were the first of two types of rookie cards in the set. Their design and color scheme make them easily stand out from the base cards. Yastrzemski is by far the most expensive of the group that also features rookies of fellow Hall of Famers Frank Howard and Jim Kaat.

1960 Topps #227 Casey Stengel Baseball Card
1960 Topps #212 Walter Alston Baseball Card
1960 Topps #216 Joe Gordon Baseball Card

All-Star Rookies (#316 - 325)

Here's a look at the styling of the second type of rookie card you'll find in this set: the Topps All-Star Rookies.  These cards look great and are special since kids voted on these players as standouts based on their play the previous year.

1960 Topps #316 Willie McCovey Rookie Card

World Series Highlights (#385 - 391)

In their second year in Los Angeles, the Dodgers brought a World Series championship to their new home. Yes, 1959 was a special season for Dodgers fans and Topps dedicated a short subset to their previous year's triumphs.

1960 Topps #388 Gil Hodges World Series Homer Baseball Card

Team Coaching Staffs (#455 - 470)

Coaching staffs were not left out in the 1960 Topps set and I think the design of these cards is excellent. Each coach's face and his last name has its own special section on these segmented designs.

1960 Topps #470 Washing Senators Coaches Baseball Card

Sport Magazine 1960 All-Stars (#553 - 572)

Sport Magazine also sponsored the All-Star section of players that were cards number 553 through 572. They can be tough to find in top condition since they fall so late in the print run.

1960 Topps #555 Nellie Fox All-Star Baseball Card

Combo Cards (Randomly Inserted)

These special cards were scattered throughout the set and featured unique player combos themed around a certain topic. Perhaps the most desired of them all is the Mickey Mantle and Ken Boyer "Rival All Stars" card.

1960 Topps #160 Mantle and Boyer Rival All Stars Baseball Card

Team Cards (Randomly Inserted)

Topps once again issued team cards that, in my opinion, are a bit bland in design compared to the rest of the cards in this set. They're still great cards, don't get me wrong, but they just don't seem to pack as much of a visual punch.

1960 Topps #484 Pittsburgh Pirates Team Baseball Card

1960 Topps Baseball Packs and Cases

Topps distributed these cards at a range of price points:

  • Single-card penny packs
  • Nickel wax packs
  • Dime cello packs
  • 29-cent rack packs

Here is a look at some of the boxes and wrappers in which these cards were packed.

2nd Series Cello Box - 34 Ten Cent Packs

When it was time to plan the design for the 1960 Topps baseball cards, Sy Berger and the rest of the Topps braintrust must have felt a tremendous sense of autonomy.

After all, major competitor Bowman was five years in the rearview, long ago purchased and folded into the archives.

And Fleer was only nibbling around the edges, unable to issue cards of current players in their Major League Baseball uniforms and opting instead for sets of all-time greats and an exclusive run of 1959 Ted Williams cards.

1960 topps wax packs

So, with no real competition on the horizon, Topps tried something different — they went back to a horizontal format for the first time since 1956 but maintained the then-standard 2.5″ x 3.5″ card size.

Lots of color, two photos per card, special subsets, and bold blocky design elements dominated the cards, and it’s a look like no other.

But were the cards popular? Hard to say for sure how they landed with collectors of the day, but today’s hobbyists love the 1960s right along with other cards of the era.

We love them enough, in fact, that some can bring big money on the secondary (or tertiary or quaternary) market.

In that spirit, here are the ten most valuable 1960 Topps baseball cards, ranked by values of PSA 7 specimens as reported in the PSA Sports Market Report Price Guide.

1960 Topps Mickey Mantle (#350)

1960 Topps Mickey Mantle

The baseball card value game isn’t always fair, and that goes double when Mickey Mantle is involved.

I mean, no matter which set we’re talking about, there’s a decent chance the Commerce Comet is going to be on top of the heap.

Unless there’s a Hall of Fame rookie card in the set.

Sometimes, though, the Mantle Effect can’t be overcome by the mere presence of even a stellar RC … or two.

That’s the case with 1960 Topps, because even though there are two all-time RCs on the checklist (see below), Mantle rules the day.

Hard to argue with that situation, really, because this is a great looking mid-career card of the guy who still captures our imagination like few others, even 50+ years after his retirement.

In PSA 7, this is an $800+ card.

1960 Topps Carl Yastrzemski Rookie Card (#148)

1960 Topps Carl Yastrzemski

The first Carl Yastrzemski card I ever held in my hands was his 1983 Topps base issue, and I remember being struck by a) hold old he looked and b) the Bible-print wall of statistics on the card back.

Not long after that, I found out that the 1960 Topps Yaz rookie card was one of the most coveted in the hobby. I eventually saw one in a picture, or maybe at a card show in Indianapolis, and thought it looked pretty funky — but in an exotic sort of way that made it seem all the more unattainable.

While that Yaz RC doesn’t hold quite the lofty position it once did thanks to the hobby emergence of first-year cardboard from Pete Rose, Steve Carlton, Rod Carew, Tom Seaver, and Nolan Ryan, it’s still a cardboard staple.

Today, this is about a $300 item in PSA 7.

1960 Topps Willie McCovey Rookie Card (#316)

1960 Topps Willie McCovey Rookie Card

McCovey actually scored two cards in the 1960 Topps set — this Topps All-Star Rookie and a “regular” All-Star card.

The Big Mac rookie never quite held the same sway over collectors as its Yaz counterpart, but it’s always been one of the more valuable pieces of the 1960 Topps set.

It sells for $250+ in PSA 7 today.

1960 Topps Hank Aaron (#300)

1960 Topps Hank Aaron

It took awhile for mid-career Aaron cards to gain the acclaim they deserve, but these days most fans and collectors recognize Aaron for what he is — one of the best two or three players of the 50s and 60s, and one of the top 5 ever.

That status reflects here, in the form of a classic piece that’s a $250+ card in PSA 7 condition.

1960 Topps Mickey Mantle All-Star (#563)

1960 Topps Mickey Mantle All Star

Sometimes, the Mantle Effect doesn’t end with his base card.

But that only happens when … well, when there’s any sort of other Mantle card in a set. You know, like All-Star, or World Series, or “Mantle Hits a 565-foot Home Run” Mantle cards.

In the case of 1960 Topps, that extra Mantle card is of the All-Star variety, and the big “60” in the background looks downright prophetic given what would unfold over then next couple of seasons.

For our purposes, just know that this is about a $200 card in PSA 7.

1960 Topps Willie Mays (#200)

1960 Topps Willie Mays

Willie Mays was always right there with Mantle in the conversation about who was the best player in the game at any given time. Duke Snider was sort of lumped in there, too, by virtue of his prominence with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

But it was Willie who got top billing in all those “Willie, Mickey, and The Duke” refrains, and he ended up as the most accomplished of the three.

His 1960 Topps card is an absolute classic and can fetch close to $200 in PSA 7.

1960 Topps Roberto Clemente (#326)

1960 Topps Roberto Clemente

Even though he died prematurely in a plane crash nearly 50 years ago, Clemente’s popularity seems to grow year after year.

That’s reflected in his cards across the board, and especially with pasteboards that hold special significance.

Clemente’s 1960 Topps card is stunning, as the colors, figurine batter shot, and Pirates logo fit together like art. It doesn’t hurt that the Bucs won the World Series in dramatic fashion against the New York Yankees that fall, either.

Expect to pay $175 or more in PSA 7.

1960 Topps Sandy Koufax (#343)

1960 Topps Sandy Koufax

In 1960, Sandy Koufax was still trundling along as a good but not spectacular starter — and sometimes reliever — for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

It would be another year before he put up anything resembling big numbers and clinching an All-Star berth, and another three until he became the lockdown beast that we all remember him as today.

This 1960 Topps card is a snapshot in time of a young man on the verge of big things, and it can sell for $100 or more in PSA 7 today.

1960 Topps Stan Musial (#250)

1960 Topps Stan Musial

At the other end of baseball’s circle of life in 1960 stood Stan Musial, the St. Louis Cardinals’ beloved elder statesman who had built his legend over the course of two decades under the arch.

Counting 1960, Stan the Man would manage four more Big League seasons before retiring in 1963 as a Cooperstown lock.

Not surprisingly, Musial cards have always been popular across the board, and this one is a $100+ item in graded NM condition.

1960 Topps Roger Maris (#377)

1960 Topps Roger Maris

As 1960 dawned, Roger Maris was on the move from the Kansas City Athletics to the vaunted New York Yankees.

Could the young outfielder with the big power stroke put things together under the bright city lights, or would he wilt in the fire of expectations?

Well, Maris answered question pretty emphatically with an MVP season that helped the Yanks reach the World Series.

And the next season?

He didn’t do much for an encore … just a little home run race with teammate Mickey Mantle that ended with Maris eclipsing Babe Ruth‘s single-season dinger record by clubbing 61 of his own.

He also made “asterisk” a trending topic before we had trending topics.

For all this, Maris’s cards remain strong sellers nearly 60 years on, and this 1960 Topps piece — his first in a Yankees uniform — brings $100 or more in PSA 7.

I put my hands on his shoulders, and he shuddered and lifted his head. His clear blue eyes seemed to look straight into the soul. With a sharp movement, I pulled him to me and hugged him tightly.
