Completed Team Set 1961 Topps

Added the final piece of my 1961 Topps Angels team set, this #464 Leroy Thomas rookie card. The last several cards I recently picked up were from the high numbers: #527 Gene Leek, and # 547 Leon Wagner, typically more pricey than the lower numbers.

This is the first team set in Angels history and I'm glad to finally get this goal finally out of the way.
Autographed cards (15): Eli Grba, Ken Aspromonte, Jerry Casale, Ken McBride, Ted Bowsfield, Bill Rigney, Ken Hamlin, Tex Clevenger, Julio Bequer, Ned Garver, Earl Averill, Eddie Yost, Johnny James, Ron Moeller, Rockey Bridges.

I'm not sure when in 1961 these cards came out, but since these were for the Angels first season, most players are not pictured in Angels uniforms. Some other observations follow.

Hatless: 18
Airbrushed Hats: 2
Wrong Hats: 3
Pictured in Yankee Uniforms: 4
