The Topps 1960 World Series insert set was produced in 1961 and consisted of 35 cards. The cards featured highlights from the 1960 World Series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the New York Yankees. The front of each card had a color photograph of a moment from the series, while the back provided a brief description of the action. The set included cards of notable players such as Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Roberto Clemente. The most valuable card in the set is the Mickey Mantle card, which features him sliding into home plate. In Game 7 of the 1960 World Series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the New York Yankees, the score was tied 9-9 in the bottom of the ninth inning. Bill Mazeroski of the Pirates came up to bat with one out and hit a solo home run over the left-field wall, giving the Pirates a 10-9 victory and clinching the World Series championship. Mazeroski’s home run is considered one of the most iconic moments in baseball history, as it was the first time a World Series had ever ended on a walk-off home run, and it came in a thrilling back-and-forth series between two storied franchises. The moment is still celebrated by Pirates fans and baseball enthusiasts alike, and the bat Mazeroski used to hit the home run is on display at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. This lot is the 7th (#312) in a series of 8 baseball cards from the Topps 1960 World Series insert set produced in 1961. The card commemorates Bill Mazeroski’s famous home run.
