The least attractive aspect of the 1961 Topps baseball card set
were the capless players !!!
Baseball expansion led to the problem when
Los Angeles Angels were added,
the Washington Senators became the Minnesota Twins
and the Washington Senators got a new franchise.
Because of these changes, tons of players were capless
and looked awful. picture you 50 year old grand-dad.
Life was obviously tougher back then.

Bazooka Bazooka Bubble Gum put baseball cards on the back of their
boxes from 1959 thru 1971. Complete boxes and panels can get extremely costly.
Most kids back then could not afford complete boxes of bubble gum at one
making Bazooka cards quite scarce. I actually don't recall ever obtaining
a Bazooka card directly from a box as a kid. Do you ???
