To this day, the set remains popular with collectors.

1964 Topps Beatles Black and White 1st Series Set Details

The 60-card set uses a mix of photo styles. They range from musical shots to portraits to candid pictures of the band goofing around. Some show the entire band while others only have individual members. As the set's title suggests, photos are black and white. Card fronts have a small white border and a blue facsimile signature. Cards with more than one band member have just one facsimile signature.

  1. I have a small card like these signed John Lenon,…… Found in a wall in an old house!…… Plse call need more info on it…..5023302830. Thx

  2. Klinton burke (ID 73097) Unfortunately, it’s likely a facsimile (printed) signature and not a real one. All of the cards have them. Unless, of course, you see an autograph on the front besides the facsimile one.

  3. Found a wallet size picture when tearing up floor of an older house. Shows John Lennon and Paul McCartney, both holding guitars but setting up the stage? Blond hair guy with black rim glasses, another bald guy, and three security guards on stage. Can’t find replica of it on line anywhere

  4. I have #’s 2,12,44 & 58 from the 1-60 original series. They are in good condition but have a piece of tape on each one. I also have my ticket stub from the Civic Arena concert of the Beatles Sept 14th 1964. Paid $5.90 for 5th row seats.

  5. I have #1 of 60….a couple bad spots on the photo, but that’s it. George Harrison signed. Found in the wall of a home.

  6. i have a #5 with blue print signature

  7. All are like that. They are facsimile (printed, not real) signatures.

  8. I have original # 32 picture sign by Ringo star anybody knwo how much are this worth ??? $

  9. I have Beatles card number 49 in a series of 60 TCG printed in USA signature by Ringo Starr on the front it shows all four Beatles left to right Paul Ringo Georgia John anyone interested send me a message on my email about thank you Donna

  10. I have a #2 of John Lennon (black and white). Does it have a volume outside the group of #60 cards? Thanks for an answer.
