Customs expand '60T All-Star selections

I've always been a fan of the 1960 Topps nigh-number All-Star cards. Maybe it's the white background, or the big colorful "60" or the player selection (lots of Milwaukee Braves).

I don't know on what basis Sport magazine made its all-star selections for that subset, but a lot of great players were  missed.

Two such worthy selections are the subjects of my custom card additions to that issue.

Ted Williams, of course, wasn't under a Topps contract in 1960. And Roberto Clemente, whom Topps was trying to convert to "Bob" in that era, was just coming into his own as a star outfielder.

There's really nothing much to add here, I'll just post the pictures for your enjoyment.
