1964 Topps Beatles Black and White 3rd Series marks the final installment of the simple but fun series. Like the previous two series, the cards offer a visual look at the band and little else. That said, the images capture the spirit of the Beatles at the time. They remain hugely popular with both the band's fans and with card collectors.

The 1964 Topps Beatles Black and White 3rd Series checklist drops down to 50 cards (1st Series was 60, 2nd Series was 55). Card fronts have a colorless photo and a blue facsimile autograph from either John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison or Ringo Starr. The cards have no captions.

The charm of the set comes in the photo selection. As one might expect, there are plenty of the Beatles performing on stage. Also expected are individual portraits. However, the most interesting cards are those that capture the band out and about and goofing around. For example, this set has several images of the Beatles at a beach, fooling around in the water. Other cards have the band members dressed up in silly outfits, shaving and just hanging out and having fun.

Card backs are very plain. The bottom of the card has a green box that notes the series, card number and set size. Like the previous two series, 1964 Topps Beatles Black and White 3rd Series cards have no captions.

  1. I have a 3rd Series No. 158 Beatles
    Trading Card. It is a black & white of John, Paul & Ringo. No George. Signed in blue by Ringo. My little sister played with it and it is not in top condition but the picture is very clear and all the details are there. Any value?
    Thank you.

  2. Betty Mullis » Unfortunately, condition is important. An ungraded copy with some damage would only be worth a few dollars, at most. The signature is a facsimile autograph. It is still a great set, but the values are generally not very high.

  3. I found a 3rd series No.118 Beatles
    Trading Card. Signed in blue by Paul.
    In surprisingly good condition.
    Your Thoughts ? Value etc…
    Thank you.

  4. I have 3 cards if John.
    #1 is 3rd series #135. (#113 through #165) No folds, wrinkles or fading. Sharp corners and edges.

    #2 Doesn’t say what series but it’s #16 of a series of 60. John standing leaning against a wall with his left hand on his hip, right hand on the wall. No folds, wrinkles or fading. Sharp corners and edges.

    #3 #2 in a series od 60. Close up pic of John.
    No folds, wrinkles or fading. Sharp corners and edges. Card does have a slight imperfection. It looks like a fold but it only is about 1 inch and looks more like a imperfection in the paper it was printed on.
    Could you tell me about what they might be worth.

    Thank you

  5. I have a black and white of Paul and John. 3rd series #146. Signed in blue by Paul. Excellent condition. What do you think the value is.
    Thank You

  6. Robin Brant-Lopez » It is a facsimile signature, not a real one. It’s like this on all of the cards.
