My First 1960 Leafs

I hadn't been aware of the 144-card 1960 Leaf baseball set until just a month ago. The cards are, as I'm sure you can see, black and white, and each contains well-written biographies on the back along with 1959 and career stats. I happened to have liked what I saw online when I first encountered them, so put in a small bid for a lot of 3 on eBay, and....I won! I won!

Here's 3/144ths of that 1960 Leaf set!


  1. To get around the monopoly that Topps held regarding releasing cards with gum, these cards were distributed with a special bonus, a marble!

  2. I don't think I've seen any of these in person (and I had no idea they were issued with marbles lol)

    Newcombe never looks right as anything but a Dodger.
