1964 Topps Beatles Movie Hard Day’s Night Trading CardsBrand: Beatles
1964 Topps Beatles Movie Hard Day's Night trading cards center on the iconic band's big screen debut. The 55-card set is one of seven Beatles-themed releases that year. Although not rare, it's one of the tougher sets to put together.
Card fronts are very simple. A black and white photo is accompanied by a small white border. Images are a mix of shots from the film and on-set photos. Unlike the three 1964 Topps Beatles Black and White sets, 1964 Topps Beatles Movie Hard Day's Night cards do not have a facsimile signature on the front.
Card backs come with a descriptive caption. They heavily publicize the film and roughly outline some of the movie's plot. A video camera graphic is in the background. The card number is set is the middle of the camera. The bottom of the card has a bold headline announcing the film as well as copyright information.
While 1964 Topps Beatles Movie Hard Day's Night cards are available, they're not as plentiful as most of the other Topps Beatles sets released that year. Prices, however, are in line with all of the other sets except 1964 Topps Beatles Plaks.
