#361 Checklist 5th Series

#361 Checklist 5th Series
Ooh, the ever-elusive unmarked checklist! At first glance, a checklist would seem to be as far removed from our recent run of Hall of Famers as you could get. However, you'll notice that there are actually SIX Hall of Famers featured on this card: Orlando Cepeda, Willie Stargell, Carl Yastrzemski, Harmon Killebrew, Luis Aparicio, and Al Lopez. What do you mean it's not the same?

This is the sixth checklist I've featured (out of seven total), and it encompasses the fifth series of 1965 Topps: cards #353-429. Of course "Killer" gets the hero number of 400. In addition to the Cooperstown enshrinees listed above, other notables in this series include Vada Pinson, Tommy Davis, Rocky Colavito, and Curt Flood. How many Series Five cards do I have? Holy cow...76 of 77! That's 98.7%! Flood is the only card missing. He can run, but he can't hide...

  1. Fifth Series in my hometown came out in late summer. After that you might not get much time with 6th or 7th Series, the stores didn't always stock them. I remember getting a pack with Don Landrum (#596, 7th Series) late that year and how exotic it seemed.

  2. Doug - Were the stores stocking football cards by that time of year?
