Yes, I know there actually was a Frank Howard card issued for the 1960 set. I wanted to make a base card of him for his Rookie of the Year season. I've had a running theme of putting the Rookies of the Year on the 1975 Topps MVP cards. Now I'm getting to a point in Topps history where if the player does have a card, many are on rookie cards or multi-player cards. I think that in order to give a good representation of that year's set, I need to have at least one standard issue card.
After short stints in the majors in 1958 and 1959, Howard hit 23 homers and 77 RBIs in 1960 which was enough to put him at the top of a rookie class that included teammate Tommy Davis and future Hall of Famer, Ron Santo.
