Product Details

User Rating:

1964 Topps Beatles Black and White 1st Series is one of several trading card sets of the band released that year. With Beatlemania firmly entrenched, the demand for anything with the Fab Four was hot. Today, the set remains popular with collectors.

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.

1964 Topps Beatles Black and White 1st Series card backs are very simple. The are complete plain except for a small blue box at the bottom that has the card number.

Topps produced two additional black and white Beatles releases in 1964. These sets continue the numbering scheme.

  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.

  13. i would like to know the value of Beatles cards from the TCG set of 60. I have #17,#34,#44 and #45. I have had them for45 years. Thankyou.

  14. I have a uncut black and white sheet of 55 cards. There are no numbers on the cards or blue signatures, also there is nothing printed on the back of the sheet, is this worth anything?

  15. I have a lot of beatle cards. Unfortunately I put my name on the back of all of them and a red dot so I would know they were mine as a kid. Does this change the value? I also have a long wall decoration with their faces and things,again I wrote things on it.

  16. nancie Unfortunately, writing brings down the value significantly.

  17. I have a 2nd series No.92 that is printed T.C.G. Printed in U.S.A. The backside is white…..but the ink is GREEN , like the later 3rd Series…..Not the usual RED ink! Anybody know what’s up with that?
    Many with a dark back, also printed in GREEN, seem to be printed in Canada.

    Maybe I should have said ORANGE ???

  18. I have several complete sets. Color. B and w movie cards. Are any of them worth anything?

  19. I had 3000 mint trading card stolen from me a few months ago. I am now trying to deal with the insurance company. The cards were never touch except when new and the put into a small case were they have been all these years. I had every set in duplicate. Can you give me an ideal of the value. All mint and pristine condition, all very white.

  20. I’m looking for # 58 in the original b/w 1964 set of 60. Does anyone have one to trade. I have many duplicates for trading….all in excellent condition.

  21. While a family member was working on my Mother in laws antique cars a box was found in it were several paintings and in the bottom was a black and white card from the 1-60 series, featuring John Lennon in the barber shop with another band member. It looks to be signed by John Lennon, but it is a printed bluish green signature. On the back is the same color bluish green box with # 55 of 60. Unfortunately the left side of the card has a place that looks like paper mites may have eaten away at it. Is there any value to this card and if so how much is it worth? I’m very interested in the whole collection. I don’t mind paying for them but I don’t want to be taken advantage of either! Any one specialized in the collection? Thank you in advance? Dino}

  23. I have the first original set complete. They are embossed. I searched for 2 yrs. mint condition. No gum or wrappers..all now encased. What is their value. BW only as they were at that time. thanks

  24. I have some Beatles black and white trading cards that from your website seem to be some from the 1-60 series. Sadly, they have been elmer’s glues to paper. I would like to get them to someone who could take them off without damaging them. Would you be interested? I do not want to keep them but think that they are at least worth something to a collector?? Are you interested and if so, I can send pictures.

  25. The Beatles signed my cast when I broke my arm in 1964. Because of this, I never let the doctor cut the cast off. Does anybody think my cast is worth anything? What would you pay for it? For the right price, I will consider having the cast removed. Hit me up.

  26. Have a beatles card nbr 24 from series 1 with a gray back. Is this a reprint

  27. I have original 1964 series 1 & 2 complete, good condition. Any idea of their value?

  28. My sister entered a drawing contest back in 1966. Her picture was featured in Teen Circle magazine. A young man named Mick, from England, started up as a pen pal. He sent her 2 letters, one from Paul to Mick and the other George to December. Pauls letter mentions someone named Dalana or Dalara. She also had an autographed picture of the Beatles holding record awards. Ringo in a long overcoat. How do I check to see if these are authentic?

  29. I have a black @ white photo with Beatles, number 5 in a series of 60 photos ( T.C.G ) printed in U.S.A. Signature by John Lennon on the front in blue pen. It shows all four Beatles shopping. Recently found this photo in a box, in good condition. I would like to inform me the current value or any interest. Thank you.
