1965 Topps Stolen Base Leaders

In 1965 Topps still didn't have Maury Wills under contract so unfortunately this card could not have been made. It's a shame because this would have been the first with Lou Brock breathing down Wills' neck. Wills still wore the crown with 53 stolen bases in 1964. Lou Brock's 43 stolen bases was enough to edge out Wills' teammate Willie Davis who stole 42. Brock started the season in Chicago before being traded to the Cardinals.  I decided to feature him hatless and attribute him to both teams.
