User Rating:

The 1962 Topps Baseball card set outdid the size of all previous Topps releases with an enormous offering of 598 cards. This sizable checklist, combined with a host of additional base card variations, makes it a challenging set for collectors to complete. The cards measure the standard 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches with most of them being laid out in a vertical orientation. The set is easily recognizable due to the distinct wood-grain styled background of the cards. The player image appears on what is designed to look like a poster, as you can see from the curling of the lower right corner of the player photo. The remaining portion of the background serves as an image border. The player's name, team affiliation and position are detailed under the curled portion of the "poster'. The backs of the cards contain the player's statistics, biographical information and a cartoon.

The set was printed and distributed in seven different series:

  • Series One #1 - 109
  • Series Two #110-196
  • Series Three #197-283
  • Series Four #284-370
  • Series Five #371-446
  • Series Six #447-522
  • Series Seven #523-598

The 1962 Topps Baseball set was available at the time in one-cent wax packs, five-cent wax packs and cello packs. The high-numbered cards can be very difficult to find, particularly those in the Rookie Parade subset.

Loaded with future Hall of Fame players, a few of the key cards in the set are Sandy Koufax (card #5), Roger Maris (#401), and Mickey Mantle (card #200). There is also a trifecta of noteworthy rookie cards included in the set as well: Gaylord Perry (card #199), Boog Powell (card #99) and Lou Brock (card #387).

The 1962 Topps Baseball contains several specialty subsets:

  • League Leaders: #51-60
  • Babe Ruth Tribute Series: #135-144
  • World Series Highlights: #232-237
  • In Action: #311-319
  • The Sporting News All-Stars: #466-475
  • Rookie Parade: #591-598

Wax packs of cards contained a unique insert in the form of a player stamp. Available in either a red or yellow background, there are 200 stamps in the set. At the time, collectors could mail away for a specially designed album in which to house the entire stamp collection. The cost for this value added benefit in 1962 was just a dime.

Cards from the 1962 Topps Baseball card set are particularly hard to find in higher-grade condition due to their propensity for chipping around the edges. As previously mentioned, there are a whole host of variations, mostly related to color tinting but several with other printing flaws and uncorrected error cards exist as well. When taking these cards into account, it pushes the master checklist to 615 total cards. In addition to their traditional release, Topps also issued a version for the Venezuelan market as they had done in years past. That set consists of the first 198 cards.
