The solution? Break it down into segments. Here are my favorites from the 60's...
Favorite Baseball Card Set: 1964 Topps Giants
1964 Topps Giant #11
1964 Topps Giant #25
1964 Topps Giant #51
The 1964 Topps Giant set is one of my all-time favorite oddball issues. I really enjoy the simplicity of the design. It really gives off that old school vibe.
It was a tough decision, but it beat out the 1960 and 1965 Topps flagship sets for favorite 60's baseball set.
Favorite Movie: To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)
The number of movies released prior to the 70's that I've watched is fairly limited, but two movies stood out to me. One of them was Yojimbo (1961). The other was To Kill A Mockingbird. Both are fantastic movies that I've watched on multiple occasions, but I decided to go with the latter since I went with another Kurosawa film for my 50's selection.
My knowledge of cards trumps movies, so I won't even attempt to write a legit review for this classic movie. I'll just say that I'm a big fan of the characters... especially Atticus Finch, a single father who is ethical, honorable, and a good role model for his children.
Favorite Song: All Along The Watchtower (Jimi Hendrix 1968)
When I'm not reading blogs in my free time, I enjoy watching and listening to bands perform covers of famous songs. I've never been a huge fan of Bob Dylan, but when he wrote this song in 1967, he wrote a masterpiece. However when it comes to performing it, the Hendrix cover is my favorite.
That wraps up the 60's. Next week I'll share my favorites from the 70's. Until then...
Happy Tuesday and sayonara!
