Tittle - 1960 Topps football card #113 Pete Retzlaff - 1960 Topps football card #85 Charley Conerly - 1960 Topps football card #72 John Olszewski - 1960 Topps football card #125 Ollie Matson - 1960 Topps football card #63 Bobby Layne - 1960 Topps football card #93 Jim Brown - 1960 Topps football card #23 Mal Hammack - 1960 Topps football card #104 John Unitas - 1960 Topps football card #1

The toughest card in this set to find in high grade is Alan Ameche, in the upper left corner of the sheet. As I am writing this, PSA has assigned grades of 8 or 9 to only 18 instances of this card. Also, there are no PSA 9's of two cards in the set: the John Unitas card in the bottom right corner, and Lou Michaels, on the right edge.

The last card in the set, the Redskins team card, has a population of 66 PSA 8's, 1 PSA 8.5, and 14 PSA 8's. According to the price guides, in any vintage set, the last card is scarcer than the other cards (and therefore worth more) because it got beat up from being on the bottom of kids' piles of cards. I have seen little evidence that this is assertion is true, though. I find that a card's position on an uncut sheet is a much better predictor of scarcity, because the corners and edges of the sheets tended to get damaged in production.

An odd thing about the 1960 Topps sheet is that the four team cards on the bottom half of the sheet are oriented the opposite way of the eight team cards on the top half. I don't know the reason for this. All of the team cards have a checklist on the back, half of them for the first 66 cards in the set, and half of them for the last 66 cards. There is no correlation, though, between the orientation of the team cards and which checklists they have on the back.

The following table shows how the cards were arranged by number on the sheet. As I said on the 1959 Topps virtual sheet page, the seemingly random ordering might have been to make the distribution of cards in packs appear random.

2 54 95 81 115 36 46 64 27 13 105
94 124 53 116 4 75 12 88 33 87 41
110 122 48 57 5 126 17 35 73 11 69
47 18 120 67 108 40 128 78 7 82 59
98 21 8 132 58 76 118 29 49 86 31
45 109 56 112 19 92 100 129 70 37 90
89 60 6 43 62 38 50 102 9 91 130
68 131 39 119 30 127 107 44 99 111 71
55 117 34 15 97 96 103 66 121 28 24
65 22 79 106 80 51 20 61 26 83 77
14 52 42 10 101 32 84 25 123 16 114
74 3 113 85 72 125 63 93 23 104 1

There is only one rookie card of a hall of fame player in this set: Forrest Gregg. There are a lot of errors in the set, from misspelled names to reverse images to a picture of the wrong Jim Taylor.
