1961 Topps Baseball Checklist

By: Tony Frye

Last Updated:

1961 Topps Baseball was a 587 card set that included six different Mickey Mantle cards.

This set is the first to include the Los Angeles Angels and the Minnesota Twins on a checklist. The Angels were founded in 1961 and the Twins were the Washington Senators through the 1960 season.

Three Hall of Fame inductees have their rookie cards within this set — Ron Santo (35), Billy Williams (141), and Juan Marichal (417).

36 Magic Rub-Offs were randomly distributed in packs. These temporary tattoos were half comprised of team logos and half of players. There was also a set of 208 stamps randomly distributed in packs, all of players.

This set was released over seven different series.

Our checklist is divided by teams. You may scroll through the entire list or jump to your favorite team by selecting them from the list below. Clicking a link within the checklist will direct you to an affiliate retailer or relevant eBay listings for that card.
