I love this wood bordered 1962 Topps.  Here is a beautiful PSA 8 for you to see.  This was Snider's last Dodger card, and he already looked like someone's Grandpa in the pic.  Even though he only played 80 games in his last season as a Dodger in 62, he still was great when playing, with an OPS+ of 149 at age 35.  Interesting note you may not know...Topps has always made the cards of the best players numbered on the hundred. Here is the 1962 rundown.

100- Warren Spahn

200 - Mickey Mantle

300 - Willie Mays

400 - Elston Howard

500 - Duke Snider

The wood border has returned a couple times.  25 years later, it came back with 1987 Topps.  Here is a cool Turn Back The Clock card of the 1962 NL MVP.  They show a 1962 Topps within this card, but that card did not even exist!  As I previously mentioned in the Wills post, he did not have a Topps Card until 1967.  

Topps came back again with 2011 Topps Heritage as another remake of the 1962 set, but there are no Dodger cards that have my interest, so it appears nothing from this set will make my collection.
