Posted By: <b>Steve Murray</b><p>1959 Topps<br />1953 Bowman Color a very, very close second. (This is the set I traded to this fellow from Virginia, sight unseen, for over 700 T206 cards sometime back in the 80's).<br />

Posted By: <b>Jim Dale</b><p>The 1975 Topps Mini set rules; big time registry competition, ridiculous prices on high grade cards; its a lot of fun.

Posted By: <b>daryle</b><p>1952 Topps<br />Not all because of their value but have been intrigued by those cards since I started collecting back in '82. Something about them when you get all of them together.<br /><br />Then I'd have to say 1956 Topps for me is second. Heck, the entire run of Topps from 1952-1956............

Posted By: <b>Bruce MacPherson</b><p>1972 Topps - first cards I remember as a kid<br />1957 Topps - first pre 1970 set I completed (finished this one pre ebay and it took forever buying 3 or 4 cards at a time at local shows)<br />1953 Topps

Posted By: <b>Andy</b><p>1. 1954 Topps - I love the Kaline, Aaron and Banks rookies, and not one, but two Ted Williams cards. It's just missing a Mantle though, which stinks.<br /><br />2. 1975 Topps - this set just perfectly fits with the middle of the 70's in terms of design with those bold colors and all those great photos of players on the patchy dirt covered training fields. And the Brett rookie is one of my all time favorite cards.<br><br>Thanks,<br /><br />Andy

Posted By: <b>jeffdrum</b><p>When I do this I always break it down by decade:<br /> 1940's - '49 Bowman<br /> 1950's - '57 Topps<br /> 1960's - '63 Fleer/'67 Topps<br /> 1970's - '72 Topps<br /> 1980's - '84 Donruss<br /><br />Some of the ugliest sets IMO are 1973 Topps/1977 Topps/1981 Fleer.<br />
