The 1960s included the time period from 1963 through 1968 that is sometimes referred to as the "Second Deadball Era". Because of this, the 1960s are frequently associated with great pitching and great pitchers.

But none of those guys was actually the best pitcher of the 1960s. The best pitcher of the 1960s, as measured by Player won-lost records, failed to receive a single Cy Young award vote in the entire decade of the 1960s (for all of the 1960s, voters only listed one name; for most of the 1960s, there was only one Cy Young award given for both leagues) or win a single World Series game (he pitched 4 shutout innings in his only World Series start).

Here, then, are the top 10 players (pitchers and non-pitchers) of the 1960s, as measured by pWins over positional average (pWOPA) and replacement level (pWORL).
