    Mays, Aaron, Clemente, F.Robinson (And that's just the outfield)
    Koufax, Marichal, Gibson, Bunning (And that's just a few starters)
    The NL was rich with great talent at the top!

    Or Brooks Robinson.

    NL had the lion's share of the big stars back then, no doubt. Wasn't around for it, but sure would've liked to see all the Giants greats from that era. Cepeda, Willie Mays and Mac, Marichal, et al. Santo, Banks, Clemente, Spahn, Bunning, Drysdale, tail end of Stan the Man and Whitey Ford's careers.

    What a time.

    You are a National League guy I take it.

    MLB in the 1960's was a joy to watch. The last golden age of baseball.

    Actually the AL got Frank Robinson as a player (‘65 MVP for Baltimore) and then a manager (Cleveland Indians). And you sure as HELL missed some great ball playing.

    That's what I meant, the NL didn't have Mantle or Brooks. ;)

    Spent many a day and night at Candlestick watching the Giants in the early 60's. Great teams but no championship during my times.

    I think Mantle and Yaz were the best hitters in the AL back then - until Frank Robinson showed up and Mantle suffered injuries.

    I was never a big Reds fan, but I liked sleeveless Ted.

    And the Yaz, even though I even hated Boston back then. He had one of the sweetest swings in all of baseball!
