1965 TOPPS PUSH-PULL CASEY STENGEL Topps produced a wide variety of non-sport sets throughout the ’50s and ’60s. If you had an itch for cars, planes, space, flags, Elvis, The Beatles, Batman, or Hopalong Cassidy, the company was there to scratch it.

Welcome Home, Choo Choo: Fabled Mets’ Catcher Coleman Finally Returns to New York

What comes to mind when I mention “1962?” Is it Casey Stengel’s fractured fairy tales? Is it Marvelous Marv and his unintentional hilarity in the environs of the first base bag?
