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 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.
