2001 Topps Archives – 1962 NL Home Run Leaders w/Aaron, Mays, Robinson, Banks, and Cepeda!!!
Jeez, talk about a who’s, who of power hitters from the 1960’s. This re-printed baseball card from the 2001 Topps Archives set celebrates the National League’s home run leaders from the 1962 design.
The card features 5 Hall of Famers, and 4 members of the ‘500 Home Runs Club’.
Now, let’s dig into the numbers.
Here is the leaderboard:
Willie Mays – 49
Hank Aaron – 45
Frank Robinson – 39
Ernie Banks – 37
Orlando Cepeda – 35
Not too shabby!!
The funny thing is that I have to now decide where to store this card. And since I collect, and organize, my cards at the player level, I have three choices – Aaron, Banks, or Robinson…
Quite the pickle that I am in, huh??
I think that I am going to have to go with Aaron. He is a focus of mine right now, and it is fitting to have a Home Run commemorative card going into his collection. Sorry Ernie. Sorry Frank.
